Milton Couple Victim of Tax Return Fraud

The following information was supplied by the Milton police department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

An Avensong Village Circle couple was the latest to fall victim of identity fraud, discovered by their CPA when he attempted to file their joint tax return.

The couple came to on May 29 to obtain a police report after their accountant told them he was unable to file their tax return because someone had already filed a tax return in their names.

The couple had a copy of IRS Form 14039 Identity Theft Affidavit, and needed a police report.

Two purchases were made at a Norcross Chevron station, with a third purchase at an El Taco Veloz restaurant in Atlanta. The total spent in the financial transaction fraud was approximately $100.
