A Saga of Taxpayer Identity Theft

A True Story of Theft After Death and How the Family Worked Through It


Taxpayer Identity Theft

This is the story of Brian and Wendy. They were my first clients when I started my business as a public accountant. Brian and I met in college and became the best of friends. He died at a much too early age of 31.

My role as accountant became even more important upon Brian’s passing, even more so when we found out someone stole Brian’s identity, filing a tax return with Brian’s name and Social Security Number. This is the story of that mess, and how it got cleaned up.
