Attorney General Ashley Moody: “Identity thieves love tax season and as we continue our series warning about common tax-related scams, I want filers to be extra cautious and take proactive steps to guard their personal information.”

Attorney General Ashley Moody is continuing the 2023 Tax-Season Scams Series with a warning for Floridians about tax identity theft.
