Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” acknowledges that the IRS rarely gives anything away, though it’s the least they can do for the 104,000 taxpayers whose identities were stolen through the IRS Get Transcript application.
St Genevieve, MO, June 19, 2015: Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” posted a new blog on the LANCE DRURY LAW website entitled “104,000 Taxpayers To Get Free Credit Monitoring From the IRS.”
In a surprising twist of events the IRS is giving something to taxpayers instead of taking from them. As Mr. Drury writes in his most recent blog, “It isn’t often we hear about the IRS giving something away for free. But, considering the fact that 104,000 taxpayers had their identities stolen and were unable to file their tax returns because thieves were able to access their personal information through the IRS’s “Get Transcript” application, well it seems that’s the least the IRS could do.” Knowing readers will wonder how the IRS systems could be so accessible, Drury explains, “Criminals first gain enough information from other sources before they try to access the IRS site. First they troll through social media sites gaining access to birth dates, street addresses and nicknames before attempting to get into the IRS site.”
He continues, “Eventually they get enough information allowing them to clear a multi-step authentication process, which includes several personal verification questions that typically are know only by the taxpayers.” Drury encourages vigilance writing, “Let this be a warning to be more cautious about what kind of information you make public on social media sites.”
