  • Monmouth County Sheriff Issues Tax Scam Alert

If federal income tax return were not filed, the law provides most taxpayers with a three-year window of opportunity to claim their tax refunds.

In the first scenario, identity thieves file a fake tax return and have the refund deposited into your bank account. But Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in Washington, D.C., will be observed that day, thus bumping the filing deadline to the 17th, according to the IRS.

Under the tax law, legal holidays in the nation's capital affect the filing deadline across the nation.

The caller gives you a case number and a telephone number to call to return the refund. This was the second year in a row this number fell, dropping from 677,000 victim reports in 2015.

Identity theft was DATCP's fourth most common consumer complaint in 2017. While there are many ways for identity thieves to strike offline, the Internet has made it that much easier for them to steal sensitive personal information from unsuspecting and careless individuals online. It starts when cyber criminals steal client data from tax professionals.

Phone scams are a "major threat to taxpayers", according to the IRS.

If you receive a call that is potentially a scam, the DATCP encourages you to resist the pressure to act quickly and warns against wiring money or providing bank information or credit card numbers to strangers.

Taxpayers receiving erroneous refunds also should contact their tax preparers immediately. Callers may threaten to arrest, deport or revoke the victim's driver's license unless they are paid.

A new twist is getting those refunds sent to the correct person, but then threatening the taxpayer by phone into returning the refunds - forwarding the money to the scammer, sometimes as gift cards.

Every year, millions of people don't file their taxes. These aren't necessarily critical areas, but can save taxpayers money if they know certain tips and tricks.

And the turn-around time to get your refund is pretty fast: The IRS issues 9 out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days after a return is filed.

A part-time data entry clerk stole tax returns she was working on and used the information to file fraudulent tax returns requesting large refunds.

While there are multiple types of plans, the Simplified Employee Pension is one to consider, he said. "To whatever extent you can, try to file your tax return early", advises McBride.
