Watch out for scams this tax season

Standard

The IRS is warning taxpayers to keep on high alert for the next few months.
Scammers may try to get their hands on your money or tax return by collecting your personal or financial data. According to the IRS, its employees will never:

• Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying taxes you owe.

• Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.

• Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.Remember, the IRS will typically mail you a bill if you owe any taxes. It doesn’t initiate contact with people via email or texts.

The IRS DOES NOT CALL YOU!  THE SEND MAIL, SNAIL MAIL.  ANYTHING ELSE IS PROBABLY A SCAM!
