Tax Security Tip 6

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has released the sixth in a series of tips intended to help the public protect personal and financial data online and at home. A new tip will be available each Monday through the start of the tax season in January. This tip describes the types of fraud alerts provided by the three major credit bureaus that may help protect financial information from identity theft.

We encourage users and administrators to review the IRS Security Awareness Tax Tip Number 6 and the US-CERT Tip Preventing and Responding to Identity Theft for additional information.
