• There Are Actually Scumbags Who Steal Your Social Security And Do Your Taxes For You



    You can get your taxes done anywhere, so you might as well get them done by someone who knows what they’re doing and get you your money back from the government. Support the Turtleboy sponsors and get your taxes done with Liberty Tax in Auburn and Greenwood Street.

    Your attention please – the Turtleboy Sports Facebook page has been suspended until Tuesday, March 22. In order to follow the blogs you MUST  like the Free Turtleboy Facebook page, which we use to post blogs whenever the Turtleboy Sports Facebook account is arbitrarily suspended. If we ever get shut down for good, this will become the new Turtleboy Sports main Facebook page.

    As you all know, there have been some reported cases lately of people using fake Facebook names to defame other people. But Facebook is not the only place this is happening. It actually happens all the time with taxes, which unfortunately you may or may not have had happen to you already.

    Source: A truly “taxing” experience for a Franklin woman who is the victim of identity theft. She didn’t know it until she got a letter in the mail from the IRS. Her tax refund could be going to someone else, and she’s not the only victim dealing with a mess like this.

    It came on a Monday afternoon. Joy Krowski says she never thought she’d be so happy to get something in the mail from the IRS.

    “I’m so glad I got this letter,” Krowski said.

    The IRS needed more information to process her tax return.

    “Inquiring about my 1040 EZ form. I knew we didn’t file that type of form,” Krowski said.

    After a few phone calls, it became clear for Krowski. Her social security number had been compromised. Someone else had used her name and number to file taxes — presumably to try to steal her tax refund.

    The IRS continues to increase its efforts against refund fraud, which includes identity theft. As a result of these aggressive efforts to combat identity theft from 2011 through October 2014, the IRS has stopped 19 million suspicious returns and protected more than $63 billion in fraudulent refunds.


    Wow, sucks to be her. First of all, I feel like this is definitely something that will eventually happen to Turtleboy. Our site gets hacked a million times a day now. That’s why it’s smart to get your ass down to your tax guy sometime before April 14, which is traditionally the day the Turtleboy family files its tax returns. The longer you give the hackers, the better shot they have at getting your tax returns before you do.

    Anyway, this year we’re going down to Liberty Tax and we suggest you do the same since they’re a Turtleboy Sports sponsor. Here’s a link to their siteIf you go to the one in Auburn then ask for Tom or Jon. If you go to the one on Greenwood Street in Worcester, ask for Heather. Mention Turtleboy and you get $25 off your tax preparation services. Trust me, there’s a million different ways you could probably be getting a bigger tax return this year that you don’t know about. This is what these people do for a living. They find out how you can get your money back from the government. Because make no doubt about it, it’s your money and the government borrowed it from you. Now you deserve to get it back. All of it. Don’t let the government pull a sheisty one on you.

    Oh yea, and those Liberty Tax dancers got off easy this year didn’t they? Never seen an easier winter in my entire life. If they do need to stay warm, they should take notes on these All-Star Liberty Tax dancers and sign guys:
