What are the warning signs of income tax related identity theft?
Warning signs may include:
- Receiving an unexpected notice from the Michigan Department of Treasury, Internal Revenue Service or another state income tax agency regarding your account.
- More than one tax return was filed using your Social Security number (SSN). You may be unaware you are a victim until you try to file your return and learn one already has been filed using your SSN.
- Receiving a notice or billing for a year in which you did not file a tax return or have a filing requirement.
