More tax fraud is in the news...
A Murfreesboro resident tried to file their taxes with the IRS only to learn that they had already been filed. While that may sound welcoming, the victim was due a refund. That being said, the victims refund had been paid to another individual using her identity.
The IRS is now investigating the case. At this point, the 52-year old victim has not received her refund.
Tax-refund fraud is expected to total $21 billion in 2016.
