Identity Theft in Alaska

Alaska MapAlaska ranks 43rd in the nation with respect to identity theft, with an average occurrence of 44.8 reported cases for every 100,000 residents. However, for the 313 individuals who reported identity theft in a recent year, their lives were negatively impacted by this emerging crime.

One of the more recent forms of identity theft is tax-related, as criminals take a stolen social security number and use it to file a tax return to claim a fraudulent refund. Victims are often unaware of this theft until they try to file their tax return and discover that another one was filed early in the year using their SSN. The IRS has provided a list of warning signs for tax-related identity theft, such as receiving an IRS notice that more than one tax return was filed with a particular SSN; IRS records indicating that wages were received from an employer not recognized by the individual; or taxpayers find out that they owe additional tax or have had collection actions taken against them for a year in which they did not file a return.

For Alaska residents who suspect that they have been a victim of identity theft, it is recommended that they file a report with the local police department, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, contact one of the three primary credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion) to establish a fraud alert on their credit records, and to take the steps necessary to close any accounts that were opened fraudulently. In addition, Alaskans who believe that they have been a victim of tax-related identity theft should respond immediately to any IRS notice received by mail, as well as complete the Identity Theft Affidavit provided by the IRS.

Also, Identity Theft Protection services are available from a number of reputable companies, to help individuals in Alaska not only prevent identity theft but also to manage the necessary steps if such theft should occur.
