Seven more Mississippians have been indicted on stolen identity tax refund fraud for allegedly filing tax returns with someone else’s identity in order to get fraudulent refunds.
Stolen identity refund fraud occurs when a person, without permission, uses a legitimate taxpayer’s identity to fraudulently file a tax return and claim a refund. This tax fraud tops the Internal Revenue Service’s list Dirty Dozen Tax Scams for 2013.
