I would begin with the company/business that has filed the victims tax returns in previous years. Many tax businesses use unskilled temp hires during tax season and train them to use the company software to process clients tax returns. All too often, copies of the previous years return are kept by the employee and used the following year to file as the individual just as tax season is beginning. This is a "VERY" common method for tax fraud. Criminals will actually take these temp positions just to gain access to a persons IRS tax information than disappear until next tax season.

You are probably 100% right. They can not be trusted in my opinion, just ask the native Americans. If you get caught in their loopholes they seem to never end.

Makes you wonder if it's an "inside" job... IRS employees themselves involved in identity theft... could happen.. look what happens in other areas of our government.... so sad for the family in this ariticle.
