Tax Season Scams

Tax season is upon us, and so are tax “scams”. Many taxpayers have encountered individuals impersonating IRS officials – in person, and via telephone and email. The IRS does not call to demand immediate payment using specific payment methods such as prepaid debit cards, gift cards or wire transfers, and does not threaten to bring in local police, immigration officers or other law-enforcement to have you arrested for not paying. Threats like these are common tactics used to victimize people. For more information see:…/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-callin…
