Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week

Did you know the Internal Revenue Service has paid out $5.8 billion in fraudulently filed income tax returns?* January 25-29 is Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week. As leaders in the legal and identity theft services industry, LegalShield has teamed up with DocuSign and Liberty Tax to offer complimentary educational resources.

These three companies offer world-class customer experiences in which trust, privacy and security play critical roles. They have announced the launch of ‪#‎ProtectYourID, which is an advocacy campaign for educating consumers and businesses about how they can better protect their data, information and identities this tax season.
