Form 14039 Can Be Filed Electronically – New IRS tax identity theft website

     

The Federal Trade Commission and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are teaming up to make it easier for consumers to report tax-related identity theft and to receive assistance in recovering from it.

The IRS will now allow consumers to report identity theft to the IRS electronically through the FTC’s IdentityTheft.gov website. Victims of tax-related identity theft need to file IRS Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit, before the IRS can begin resolving the problem. Until this new initiative, consumers could only file an IRS Form 14039 manually.

Identitytheft.gov allows consumers to report identity theft and to receive a personal recovery plan. In addition to an identity theft report that can be used in place of a police report to help clear their credit reports of fraudulent information, consumers can obtain customized letters they can send to creditors, debt collectors and others to help recover from identity theft causes.
