Colorado Criminal Defense Attorneys

Helping You with Identity Theft Charges

Identity theft is a crime that has grown exponentially in recent decades, thanks to a significant increase in the amount of personally-identifiable information exchanged every day. Criminals have also become smarter about their methods, and can perpetrate their crimes with less delay and more effectiveness than ever before.

Identity theft is an extremely serious charge, which means you should not attempt to defend yourself against your prosecution in court. When you call The Orr Law Firm, our Colorado criminal defense lawyers will work hard to fight back against your accusations and clear your name. When you retain one of our attorneys, you can be assured that your case is being handled by a legal professional who has your best interests and clearing your name at the forefront of every decision they make during your case.

If you are facing identity theft charges, call The Orr Law Firm today by dialing (303) 818-2448 for assistance!

What Happens After You Report Identity Theft?

Once you report identity theft the following will happen:

  • First, the IRS will acknowledge your reported tax identity theft. Within 30 days after the IRS gets your Form 14039, you’ll get a letter telling you that the IRS received your affidavit.

  • The IRS has employees dedicated to addressing tax identity theft. These employees are a part of the IRS Identity Theft Victim Assistance department, which resolves tax identity theft issues and communicates with victims.

  • The identity theft indicator lets the IRS know to give extra scrutiny to any tax returns filed under your taxpayer identification number. This flag helps the IRS better detect possible future fraudulent return filings and stop the return before sending any refund.

  • If the IRS discovers other tax years with identity theft-related issues, the IRS will resolve all the issues before closing out your case. Once everything is resolved, the IRS will send you a notice.

  • Lastly, you will be given a special number for your taxes.

What Constitutes Identity Theft?

Colorado Revised Statutes Section 18-5-902 states that identity theft is essentially using personally-identifiable information to attempt to obtain something of value or make a payment. A skilled attorney from our firm can review the evidence in your case and fight to prove your innocence and avoid the potentially-devastating class 4 felony penalties.

The penalties for identity theft in Colorado can include:

  • Prison sentences (up to six years)
  • Large fines (up to $500,000)
  • Loss of Constitutional rights (firearm ownership, voting)
  • Loss of ability to pursue certain employment
  • Loss of current employment
