May 8 (Bloomberg) -- Megan Hughes reports on fraudulent tax returns related to identity theft. More than 460,000 people have been the victims of tax-related identity theft since 2008, according to the IRS. The agency has been trying to flag deceased taxpayers’ final returns and prevent anyone else from using those Social Security numbers. As of mid-March, the agency had stopped 66,000 returns this year for that reason.(Source: Bloomberg)
