My accountant forwarded my 2011 tax forms to the IRS in late march. I was informed by the IRS in april that my tax refund had been claimed by someone who provided enough ID to generate the refund before the IRS picked up on the scammer. I get nowhere in trying to communicate with any agency that can tell me ****'s going on. It's several k so it's major for an old schoolteacher! Anyone else know about this federal F**kup?

    Samething happend to a friend of mine. His accountant said he had about a dozen or more of his clients who had the same problem. Good luck!

    I wish the would have used mine then they could have paid the thousands I owed! :grin

    I have seen it take a year for it to get straightened out. Did you or your accountant fill out the form 14039 and send a copy of your drivers licenses and ss card. The phone number to the identity theft unit is 1-800-908-4490. Call them at least once a week. If it looks like they are not doing much. Call the tax payer advocate program.

    It takes a while for it to be straightened out. Have had this happen to a few clients and it took anywhere from 6-12 months to resolve.
