Tax Identity Theft Puts Physicians at Risk

   The Medical Society of the District of Columbia has received reports from a number of District physicians and other state medical societies about an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax scam affecting physicians. According to the reports, fraudulent income tax returns are being filed using physician names, addresses and Social Security numbers. IRS officials believe this scam is an attempt to fraudulently recover tax refunds. 
  Physicians have become aware of the scam after attempting to file their 2013 income tax returns with the IRS. Victims have been unable to file their taxes electronically, as a return has already been filed under their Social Security number.
Physicians have been impacted by fraudulent federal and state tax returns, including out-of-state filings.

Has This Happened to You?

  If so, the Medical Society recommends you:

1. ACCESS IRS IDENTITY PROTECTION:  The IRS has tools and information available on its identity protection information page

2. CONTACT MSDC: If you have been affected by this scam OR if you detect unusual or suspicious activity on your credit report, please notify MSDC Executive Vice President Ed Shanbacker at 202-466-1800 or
