Tax Evasion Scheme Affects Hundreds

A scam involving identity theft has filed fake tax forms for hundreds of people in Florida. A mass identity theft scam has been discovered in Florida, affecting more than 500 people, including hundreds of police officers and firefighters.

A total of 400 cops and firefighters, as well as more than 100 Broward County employees, have had their identities stolen and fraudulent income tax returns filed in their names, according to Florida news source, the Sun Sentinel. County employees from Delray Beach, Davie, Oakland Park and Lauderhill have been affected.

Benefits USA, a company that controls pensions for multiple municipalities may be where the identities were stolen from, the news source said. Pete Prior, the president of the company, alerted the county's workers to a possible crime involving income tax fraud. The employees have been instructed to contact the Internal Revenue Service to check their tax filing information.

The IRS received a large amount of fraudulent tax returns requesting education credits worth at least $1,000, the news source added. The U.S. Secret Service, as well as the Broward Sherrif's Office, are conducting the investigation.
