Facebook Live: Tax Information & Safety Panel


The US Small Business Administration San Diego District Office is participating in a nationwide campaign to mark the 4th Annual National Tax Security Awareness Week, calling on people to step up their security safeguards against identity theft as the 2020 tax season approaches.

The holiday shopping season is the prime time for identity thieves who are trying to steal financial and personal data, either to drain credit/bank accounts or file fraudulent tax returns in the victims’ names early in 2020.

The SBA San Diego District Office is partnering with the Internal Revenue Service, Better Business Bureau, state tax agencies, the nation’s tax industry and other partners to elevate awareness around basic security steps.

Remember, treat your data like your dollars; don’t leave them lying around.
