Security Summit plans National Tax Security Awareness Week, Dec. 3-7
With the approach of the holidays and the upcoming tax season, the Internal Revenue Service, state tax agencies and the nation’s tax industry will sponsor a nationwide campaign in December urging people to better protect their sensitive tax and financial data.
The third annual National Tax Security Awareness campaign, to be held Dec. 3-7, will feature events nationwide, highlight a daily security topic and mark the launch of a special @IRSTaxSecurity Twitter handle that will keep the public aware of emerging threats throughout the 2019 tax filing season.
Free public webinar on how identity thieves use the Dark Web
In support of Tax Security Awareness Week, a free IRS webinar is being offered to help taxpayers understand the Dark Web and how it is used as a repository for: stolen identities, credit data, tax information and banking/financial information. During this webinar, IRS Criminal Investigation representatives will provide an overview of the Dark Web and answer questions that will help people recognize the risks and use of the Dark Web by cyber-criminals.
