Tax Season Fraud
April 15 marked the end of the tax season; however, some people may find that they were unable to file their taxes because a thief fraudulently filed taxes using their social security number. WXXI reports that New York State expects that more than $500 million in fraudulent tax refunds will be rejected this year alone. Do you have
ideas that should be shared as security tips of the week? Send them to UnivIT_SP@ur.rochester.edu.
