Alabamians owed $18 million by IRS: Are you on the list?

Alabamians owed $18 million by IRS: Are you on the list?

Last week, we talked about theft of your W-2 information from your employer. For example, a single person with three or more children could qualify for the EITC if they made less than $46,997.

Don't be a victim this tax season. You'll have to get approval - the IRS says a taxpayer's specific circumstances will determine what plan options are available. You may also want to check the security of any account that might be listed on your tax return, including your brokerage accounts.

The survey, by the consumer finance site WalletHub, found that 69 percent of people said the tax reforms are better for corporations than consumers, while 67 percent indicated the reforms benefit the rich more than the middle class.

By failing to file a return, taxpayers stand to lose more than just a refund of taxes withheld or paid during 2014. "Taxpayers and tax professionals must remain vigilant to the various scams and schemes used for data thefts".

Filing a past return could also be lucrative. The victims were asked to forward the money to a collection agency.

According to the IRS, Americans left $1.1 billion in unclaimed federal income tax refunds in 2014. The criminals use that data to file fraudulent tax returns in the names of identity theft victims. Of course, if borrowing from someone you know can endanger a relationship or make it more hard, take that into consideration. Thieves are depositing fraudulent tax refunds into individuals' actual bank accounts, then attempting to reclaim the refund from the taxpayers. Overall, the number of identity-theft victims has fallen almost 65 percent between 2015 and 2017.

Prosecutors seeking death penalty against Nikolas Cruz, confessed Parkland gunman
Cruz now " stands mute " before the charges, having withdrawn a written "not guilty" plea after being indicted by the grand jury. The only other penalty option for Cruz is life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Don't reply to any emails, texts or social media messages asking for your personal information. IRS officials will not call to demand immediate payment, nor will they demand that you pay without the opportunity to ask questions or file an appeal. Do not give out personal information over the phone to unsolicited callers, even if the caller claims to be from the IRS or your bank.

In this fake IRS notice, which uses a realistic IRS logo, victims are told that they must return the refund money to a "local refund account" within 24-hours. If they do not file a tax return within three years, the money becomes the property of the U.S. Treasury.

There are some circumstances in which your refund may take longer. "To whatever extent you can, try to file your tax return early", advises McBride.

If you decide to get an extension of the filling deadline, the IRS requires you to estimate and pay your taxes.

Get your Refund Fast and File your Taxes for Free.
