In recognition of Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week Jan. 30 through Feb. 3, join VA’s Identity Safety Service and the Office of Information and Technology, along with the Federal Trade Commission and U.S. Treasury Inspector General of Tax Assessment this Feb. 1 at 11 a.m. ET for a Twitter chat on tax identity theft.
Tax identity theft happens when someone uses your Social Security number to get a tax refund or a job. The upcoming awareness week, in particular, draws to light the importance of identity safety during the upcoming tax season, as well as the importance of remaining vigilant year round.
This event is part of VA’s More Than a Number identity protection program, which serves to provide information to educate Veterans and their beneficiaries on how to protect themselves from identity theft.
Be sure to follow @DeptVetAffairs on Twitter for the conversation Feb. 1.
