Hermosa Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
In recent months, CTR’s tax attorney Hawthorne office has been approached by several new clients that have been victims of tax fraud. The company has always had a passion for protecting taxpayers from issues that can result in IRS debt or other legal problems. With the insights gained from conversations with these individuals, the tax team decided to begin advising local California residents on the best practices to take when criminal tax activity has taken place.
“In today’s world of cyber-crime and business fraud, it’s important to know how to protect of yourself. Therefore, those of us at CTR’s tax attorney in Hermosa Beach are taking two new steps to keep you safe from the consequences of dishonest and illegal tax fraud. We’ve improved our ‘Tax Security’ program and we’re offering classes on how to keep your personal information safe. You can’t afford to mess around when it comes to sensitive personal and tax data,” said a spokesperson for CTR.
CTR’s tax professionals had previously offered a service to taxpayers that were concerned that they may have been victimized by a fraudulent income tax return preparer. To make this program stronger, the tax attorney La Habra Heights began including assistance for anyone that has had sensitive information like Social Security numbers stolen from either mail or online correspondence. Each individual should contact proper authorities if there is evidence of mail fraud, which is a federal offense. Once that has been done, it’s time to get into CTR’s newest program and start working to secure your information.
In offices all across the country, CTR has been holding educational courses about safeguarding tax information. For the clients of tax attorney La Mirada, the new seminars have been received very well. Taxpayers are applying information to keep their computers safe from hackers. When hiring tax preparers, the attendees of these meetings have learned techniques to ensure that the tax professional is trustworthy. Combining these lessons with information on what to do when someone becomes a victim of any type of tax fraud is expected to decrease the number of tax fraud cases in California significantly.

The company uses a three step program to create personalized strategies to help taxpayers settle their IRS debt.
