Tax fraud is one of the major problems for everyone!!

It has happened to me before and it wasn't cool at all. Somebody access my information then actually filed a return in my name and they even got my refund in this entire process. It took me over 6 months to get this situated.

So I learned that if you file your return early enough, that'll be a harder feat for someone to pull off.

Below is a breakdown courtesy of the Motley Fool:

"See, the IRS has software that's designed to flag duplicate returns, and so if it has one on file for you and someone else then submits a second one, it's the fraudulent return that'll get rejected. On the other hand, if a criminal beats you to the punch, it'll be on you to get things sorted out, which could not only delay your refund but also constitute a major headache."

SO FILE EARLY!! YOU CAN START FILING RIGHT NOW!
