Tax day is April 15th. With that in mind, we caught up with Attorney General Patrick Morrisey to get his take on what to expect at the end of tax season.

He said one of the things to be careful of is allowing too much personal financial information to be exposed.

These steps include keeping forms with financial information in one place and shredding items you no longer need. he also suggested staying off of public WiFi if you do your taxes online.

"Usually around this time of year people may be looking in trash bins or they may be going through your mailboxes or they'll be looking for opportunities to take your personal identifiable information away," said the Attorney General. "It's important to take a number of steps to prevent that from happening."

On Tuesday, Morrisey will be at the YWCA in Clarksburg for a town hall meeting. Topics he hopes to discuss include protecting yourself from scams and what the attorney general can do for you.
