Someone Filed Your Taxes for You. But That’s Not a Good Thing…

According to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) statistics, tax fraud is on a steep upward trend―and right now is the prime time for it. Here’s how it works… Wait! I Didn’t Get My Tax Return? Fraudsters steal personal information using different methods, and then file fraudulent tax returns as early as they can―before the victim files. ­­­­ Victims file their real tax return and receive a letter in the mail from the IRS saying that they’ve already filed a return. Meanwhile the fraudster has had the cash from their fraudulent tax return in hand for months, and then things in the victim’s life get complicated… They have to prove they didn’t file already, investigate how else their identity might have been used for fraud, and on top of that, they still have to file their taxes! And what comes after this can be even worse… The Aftermath I’ve witnessed firsthand the impact these types of criminal acts have on people from my years in law enforcement. As part...

By Susan Hanold, Vice President, Strategic Advisory Services – Talent Management at ADP, PhD More than 400 HR leaders recently descended on Denver to attend the Mile High SHRM Conference, where leading practitioners and speakers shared inspirational stories on human resources.

Wage wars brought on by job-hoppers is compounding the challenge. According to the ADP® Workforce Vitality report, employees with three to five years of tenure get the greatest compensation bump by leaving their current positions.

Further, in advanced economies, nearly 96 million workers may lack the skills needed for employment.
