Victims of Identity Theft

Victims of Identity Theft

Victims of identity theft who cannot get a return transcript or use the DRT must call the IRS’s Identity Protection Specialized Unit (IPSU) toll-free number at 800-908-4490. After the IPSU authenticates your identity, you can ask the IRS to mail you an alternate paper tax return transcript known as the TRDBV (Transcript DataBase View). Please send us a copy of the TRDBV once it has been received.

 

For victims of identity theft who have previously been in contact with the IRS and have not achieved a resolution to their case, you may contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit, toll-free, at 800-908-4490. If you are unable to get your issue resolved and are experiencing financial difficulties, contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service toll-free at 877-777-4778.
