Small business identity theft is a big business for identity thieves. Just like individuals, businesses may have their identities stolen.
The Division of Revenue wants to provide Delawareans with information about one of the most common and costly forms of identity theft – tax return fraud. Tax return fraud occurs when someone uses your Social Security number to file a tax return, and claims a fraudulent refund. It’s important that citizens be aware of the steps they can take if they suspect or have been informed that they have been a victim of tax-related identity theft.
