Beware fake IRS emails and phone calls

If it seems like tax scams that use email and phone calls that appear to come from the IRS are common these days, it’s because they are, unfortunately. Such scams often use the IRS name and logo or fake websites that can look real. 

All of which is another reason to pass along this important reminder – the IRS will never initiate contact with you through email, social media or text to ask for your personal or financial information. If someone does and claims to be from the IRS, it’s a scam. 

The IRS provides a lot of helpful information and tips on identifying and reporting tax scams at its website.
