Not a day goes by, it seems, without someone reporting identity fraud to their local authorities. The number of incidents is on the rise in all communities across the country, and here in Massachusetts.
The Massachusetts Department of Revenue, the Internal Revenue Service, state tax administrators and the private-sector tax industry, recently announced the launch of the “Taxes. Security. Together.” campaign, which aims to continue to encourage more people to protect their personal and financial data online and at home.
“Not only have we continuously redoubled our anti-fraud efforts, we have in the past welcomed every opportunity to join forces with others to fight the ever-growing issues of identity fraud,” stated Mass DOR.
