Someone claim me as a depandent on their taxes!!!?

Asked by: rdhouse 30 views YA Discussion

Ok well today I went to e-file my taxes at h&r block and found out someone claim me as a dependent on their taxes… Wtf seriously… That’s screwed up..The most scariest thing in the world to know someone has you’re social security number and can wrongfully use it for their personal gain.. I am a 25 yr old single mom of 3 children and I have read that this has happen to a billion of people.. so crazy I’m the one that supports my self and kids no one else.. I have been extremely careful with my personal paperwork so no one can obtain it.. The only person that comes into mind is my biological mother who out of spite would pull such horrible stunt.. Does anyone knows what happens with something like this after you mail in you’re tax returns to IRS??? god I hope that evil woman gets introuble..!!!

    file your return manually and when both are compared and IRS will deal with the fraud that has occurred
    yes protecting your SSN is very important

    First check with the IRS.

    Then report this to the three major credit reporting companies and have a “Firewall” placed on your files. annualcreditreport.com will give the names and phone numbers.
    Just do not use the word FREE in the address.

    The IRS will award the exemption to the person that actually qualifies for it.

    File a paper return by mail. The IRS will sort the matter out. You and whoever claimed you will be asked to either amend your return or provide proof of your claim.

    It could be something as simple as a fat-fingered SSN by someone.

    BTW, this has not happened to “a billion of people.” There are only about 160 million tax returns filed in the US and less than 2% of all returns experience such issues.
