Toledo Police are investigating cases of tax identity fraud, in which a scammer takes your information, files a tax return and gets away your refund.
"The way people find out this is happening is they file their own return and get a letter back from the IRS saying they've already got a return from you," said Dick Eppstein of the Better Business Bureau.
Eppstein says it happens when your social security number gets stolen, but it can also happen by leaving information with an untrustworthy accountant.
"You gotta protect your W2, protect your Social Security number and make sure if they won't do taxes for you, you take that worksheet," said Eppstein.
Eppstein says to always work with an established company or accountant, keep your personal information secure and not to leave anything behind with an accountant you don't plan to use.
Those who suspect they may be a victim of this type of fraud can call the IRS at 1-800-829-0433.
