Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Reviews IRS’s Efforts to Prevent Tax Fraud
Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR, highlights the most recent efforts made by the IRS to protect taxpayer information and prevent tax fraud indicating that despite the good news, the bad news sounds worse.
Fairhope, AL, August 4, 2016: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR.com, recently posted a new article on his website entitled “The Good, The Bad and the Plain Ugly News for Victimized Taxpayers.” The IRS has to make as much noise as they can about how well they are protecting taxpayer information. However, Mr. Willis takes a look at news the IRS is not telling.
“From the IRS’s perspective,” writes Willis, “it sure sounds like the massive government agency is doing a pretty decent job of protecting taxpayer information from cyber-criminals.” He continues adding, “Even though the tax scam artists continue to reach out to taxpayers via phone and emails attempting to get their financial information or steal money from them, those crooks hacking into the IRS data banks might be having a slightly more challenging time.”
According to Willis, “Despite the good news, the bad news sounds worse.” He states, “The IRS has decided to shut down and eliminate the E-file PIN program they put in place late last year for those taxpayers whose identities have already been stolen and used to file fake tax returns. Why, you ask? It didn’t take long for the cybercriminals to make use of the program for their own nefarious business.”
Willis continues, “If you happen to be one of the unfortunate victims who received an E-file PIN from the IRS,” says Willis, “you simply cannot use it anymore.” He continues, “It’s hard to know what the future holds for you and all the hundreds of thousands of other taxpayers whose identifications have been compromised. It’s little comfort knowing that the only way to obtain a copy of your tax return is through the separate Get Transcript application on the IRS Website. Spoiler alert! The Get Transcript application database was breached in the past with hackers walking away with over 300,000 taxpayer dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and addresses.”
