The Mobile Police Department would like to provide tips and warnings of potential crimes and scams commonly reported which involve income tax returns.
  • Only use licensed businesses to prepare taxes.
  • Use resources such as the Better Business Bureau to research tax preparation businesses and individuals before soliciting their services.
  • Protect private information such as Social Security numbers, dates of birth and account numbers. These may be used to gain access to personal information or to create fraudulent accounts.
  • Make sure all transactions are documented and copies are kept for personal records.
  • After filing tax records, do not disclose to others the amount of a refund received or expected.
  • Report all fraud to the Mobile Police Department and allow our detectives to investigate and prevent future criminal activity.
  • Only use recognized and secure tax websites when providing personal information online.
