Tax ID Theft image

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR), a national leader in fraud prevention, warns Hoosiers to be cautious when handling their personal and financial information during tax season.

“Since 2014, Indiana has stopped more than $110 million in stolen identity refund fraud,” stated DOR Commissioner Adam Krupp. “Our fraud prevention programs show continuous improvements with groundbreaking results, but our efforts are lost if individuals don’t protect their own information against fraudsters.”

Tax-related identity theft occurs when a fraudulent tax return is filed claiming a refund in the victim’s name. This type of fraud starts with a stolen Social Security number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).
