Michigan Dental Association alerts members to possible tax identity theft

Craig Palmer reports:

The Michigan Dental Association told members in a special alert April 11 that “the MDA has received several calls from member dentists who say that when they submitted their federal taxes this year they learned that their taxes had already been filed, most likely by an identity thief.”

According to Karen Burgess, MDA chief executive officer/executive director, Michigan members are being encouraged to contact the MDA if they suspect identity theft or tax fraud so the association can monitor how many dentists in the state are affected.


The ADA has learned that dentists in several other states have also experienced possible tax identity theft. The Association will update members in ADA media and with other appropriate communications as this story develops.
