Safeguarding Sensitive Information
- AAP, IRS, phishing, safeguarding personal information, Social Security, Tax Fraud, taxpayers
Last week the IRS released another reminder to taxpayers about safeguarding personal information in the current tax season. Tax-related identity theft is a serious problem. As part of the continuous efforts of the “Taxes. Security. Together.” campaign, taxpayers are reminded to never give out their Social Security numbers or personal financial information over the phone.
Safeguarding Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information Is AAP’s Top Priority
Protecting our clients and clients’ employees’ sensitive information is a top priority at AAP. That is why AAP volunteered to participate in the IRS initiated National Income Tax Fraud prevention program.
To All Taxpayers
Remember, no IRS agent will ever attempt to call you to verify your tax return information over the phone. Be sure to share this post with friends to help others avoid “phishing” and other schemes.
