OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - While you're busy preparing your tax returns, scammers are also busy.
Chad Brown with Liberty Tax said commonsense steps can keep you from being a victim.
"Treat your personal information - you're sensitive data [like] your social security numbers, credit card information - just like you do with cash," Brown said. "Don't leave them laying around in your home or office where anybody can get it. Really protect that data."
If you think thieves are after you, experts say they're also after tax preparers.
