Brian Krebs came up with some more great advice – setup an IRS.gov account before the bad guys do. This is similar to setting up a Social Security online account.
The only thing I noticed when doing this for myself is that since I have already frozen my accounts, the IRS could not verify my information and thus could not setup an account. If you haven’t frozen your accounts then please do follow his advice and setup this account. Brian has a good article on the process – also read the comments below his post.
