Physicians Boost District Economy by $5.6 Billion

  Washington, DC's 4,400-plus patient care physicians have a positive and lasting impact on the health of their patients and the health of our Nation's Capital as a whole. They play a vital role in the District's economy by supporting 29,102 jobs and generating $5.6 billion in economic activity, according to a new report just released by the Medical Society of the District of Columbia (MSDC) and the American Medical Association (AMA).

Tax Identity Theft Puts District Physicians at Risk

   The Medical Society of the District of Columbia has received numerous reports from 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 often 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.
This fraud has occurred with federal, state and out-of-state tax 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 Pia Duryea at 202-466-1800 or
