Hello, I’m Chuck Rettig, Commissioner of
the Internal Revenue Service. We’re working hard to get ready for the
tax filing season. You know who else is working hard? Identity thieves. Let’s not make it easy for them. Keep your computers and your mobile phones
secure. Use antivirus software and strong passwords. Look out for email scams. Secure your home wi-fi with a password. Stay safe when you shop online, look for “https”
in the web address. Just a few basic steps can help. Taxes-Security-Together. See IRS.gov for details.
