TRAP Tax Refund Fraudsters! What You Need to Know To Effectively Combat Tax Fraud

Billions of dollars in fraudulent refunds are being paid out by government every tax year. This not only puts a strain on government’s ability to provide services, but it also erodes public trust in the country’s tax system. The increasing reliance on e-filing for tax returns increases the efficiency of tax operations and taxpayer convenience, but it also strips away crucial layers of protection between identity thieves and unwarranted tax refunds. Stealing identities and filing for tax refunds has become one of the fastest growing non-violent criminal activities in the country.

According to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), the number of identified fraudulent tax returns has increased by 40 percent from 2011 to 2012, an increase of over $4 billion dollars. TIGTA also found that the ongoing challenge of authenticating taxpayers is contributing to the growth in tax fraud.

Join us for an in-depth look at the recent survey findings from the GOVERNING Institute and hear from government and industry experts on how to optimize tax fraud detection efforts.

Also, learn about innovative tools and techniques such as
the Tax Return Analysis
