Tax Awareness WeekTax Identity Theft Awareness Week Tip #4: Here are some other tips to lessen the chance you’ll be a victim of tax identity theft:
• Always protect your Social Security number or Medicare card number: don’t give it out unless you have to, and always ask why it’s needed, how it’s going to be used, and how it will be stored.
• Shred old taxes returns you’re no longer required to keep, as well as draft returns, extra copies, and calculation sheets.
• Ask for recommendations and research tax preparers before you turn your personal information over to them.
