I got very steamed last night after watching the news and found out theft of tax returns was up about 5-fold. IRS paid out over a billion dollars to theives, accoriding the the national news report

To steal my tax refund, if I were to get one, they would have to file my return for me and put in their bank account information in the return instead of the one I use. Because in those years when I get a refund, I have the IRS EFT the money into my account. As the IRS tries to get more people to e-file, they should also make them get their refunds by EFT to reduce the theft a lot.
