Customer Question
In 2015 someone e-filed...

In 2015 someone e-filed a tax return in my name and SS#. We did not know until our accountant tried to e-file our 2016 taxes and they were rejected. I filed the appropriate form on 10/26/2016 with the IRS but have not received a PIN or any correspondence from the IRS. Please advise.

Accountant's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

FL

Accountant's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes the tax form for fraud and a report by our CPA

Thank you for your assistance, it has been extremely informative and helpful. I must wait and re-try to obtain my PIN, as the site is down for maintenance. Warm regards, Julianne
