My Ex-Girlfriend Stole My Taxes Refund. What Should I Do?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.

My ex girlfriend used my information to file for my tax returns. She has already received the pre paid card with my money.

I want to know how i can find out what pre paid account company she opened in my name.

Is there a website that can search any and all accounts that are in my name or something? I want to stop the card before she spends all my money.

Thanks so much!

    i believe if you contact the irs they can find out what accounts she has in your name and freeze them.. you might be able to find out also by free credit reporting it will show activity in your name

    I just discovered the IRS has a form to report Tax Identity Theft. See form 14039 here.

    Isn’t that illegal?? i thought you had to be thereand sign  to file for taxes in your name, sounds to me like she needs to spend some time in the pokey for fraud or something.

    What to do if your tax records were affected by identity theft?
    If you receive a notice from IRS, respond immediately. If you believe someone may have used your SSN fraudulently, please notify IRS immediately by responding to the name and number printed on the notice or letter. You will need to fill out the IRS Identity Theft Affidavit, Form 14039. 
    For victims of identity theft who have previously been in contact with the IRS and have not achieved a resolution, please contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit, toll-free, at 1-800-908-4490.
