Identity thieves stealing income tax returns after filing online

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Growing numbers of Wisconsinites are sitting down to their computers to file their state income tax returns – only to see that identity thieves beat them to it.

State consumer protection officials say they’re getting more complaints that somebody filed a tax return in their name – apparently to get another person’s refund.

The agency has not said how many people have been victimized, but it has led to a state lawsuit against the owner of a Milwaukee tax service.

Consumer officials say people should report any evidence of fraudulent tax filings immediately.
