New Information for W-2 Scam victims

The IRS has established a process that will allow businesses and payroll service providers to quickly report any data losses related to the W2 scam currently making the rounds. See details at
Form W2/SSN Data Theft: Information for Businesses and Payroll Service Providers . If notified in time, the IRS can take steps to prevent employees from being victimized by identity thieves filing fraudulent returns in their names. There also is information about how to report receiving the scam email.
As a reminder, tax professionals who experience a data breach also should quickly report the incident to the IRS. Tax professionals may contact their local stakeholder liaison. See details at
Data Theft Information for Tax Professionals 


  • Unclaimed federal income tax refunds totaling more than $1 billion may be waiting for an estimated 1 million taxpayers who did not file a 2013 federal income tax return.
  • To collect the money, taxpayers must file a 2013 tax return with the IRS no later than this year's tax deadline, Tuesday, April 18.
  • Remember, there's no penalty for filing a late return if you're due a refund.
