Tax Return Identity Theft
Yet another example of “If this is how sloppy the government handles something as ‘simple’ as taxes, just think how fabulously competent they’re going to be at managing our health care.” I feel ill just thinking about it.
I see only two things that can be done to mitigate this issue: 1) Do as much as one can to minimize the amount of tax owed to the feds and 2) file are early as possible.
Well there is that “Going Galt” thing that’s a option, too. Or find a way to get on the dole.
