It's Tax Time....yuck!


Recommended Posts

When I had my own business, a client of mine had a form of identity theft that many don't realize can happen. Someone filed a tax return using his SS#. When he went to file his own taxes, they were rejected because his identity had already been stolen. It took him the better part of 2 years to get it cleared up, not to mention the countless hours of work and frustration.

I came across a great video on how you can prevent this for yourselves. I was unaware that you could even do this (800,000 people had their identities stolen on their tax returns last year alone). I would strongly urge all of you to watch this video and take steps to prevent your identities from being used, or stolen.

I went thru the process and obtained mine. Not difficult, just a little tedious.

Why does this video require my SSN?

The video doesn't require your SS#, but the IRS does when you request the IP PIN thru them. The video is only an instruction type video. You actually have to log onto the IRS website to request the IP PIN. (irs.gov)

I'm tempted to quit filing my 1040. I've got my exemptions set to where I owe/they owe near zero. 

If they keep going on money printing binges like a drunken prostitute we turn into Zimbabwe or the Weimar Republic and it won't matter anyway. 

They are the ones that want MY money.  Let those bastards put in the work if they want it that bad, I'm tired of wasting my time on their paperwork.
