Beware of Tax Scams

Posted in addnew

As the year winds down and tax season approaches, tax scams become more popular. We urge you to exercise caution if you receive emails or telephone calls indicating they are from the IRS. The IRS will NEVER call and demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as prepaid debit/gift cards or wire transfers, initiate contact by email or text message, threaten to immediately bring in law officials to have you arrested for not paying, demand payment without the opportunity to question or appeal the amount, or ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. The link below is an article from the IRS detailing specific scams they are seeing and what to do if you are a target of a scammer.
