I got a letter from the tax board saying i owed back taxes but the only problem is i was 3 years old and i know who the person that used. I don't want to get him in trouble . what if i just pay the back taxes can it affect me any further
IRS takes identity theft very seriously. If you know who took your SS #, you should report it. Also, IRS will give you a new tax ID # to use in the future for tax purposes.
