The Internal Revenue Service has released the first of a series of YouTube videos providing information on how taxpayers can protect their tax and financial data.

The IRS is coordinating with state tax revenue departments and the tax industry on producing the videos as part of a security initiative it launched last year. The Security Summit initiative includes a public awareness campaign known as “Taxes. Security. Together.” aimed at combating taxpayer identity theft and tax refund fraud by educating taxpayers and providing them with tools to stay safe online (see IRS, States and Tax Prep Companies Launching Security Awareness Campaign for Taxpayers).
