Bolletino says once scammers get a hold of your name and social security number it’s pretty easy for them to fill out a return and get away with your money.  She says you should always do your research before filing your tax return and make sure you’re giving your information to a trusted tax preparer.

 

There were nearly 15 hundred identity theft related criminal investigations in Harris County in 2013.
