It’s Begun! Beware of Fake IRS Emails!
Today I received an email, claiming to be from the IRS, stating that there was an additional sum of money to be refunded. As a tax professional, I know I did my taxes right, but for those unaware of the system or too trusting of emails, this could be incredibly detrimental.
Remember that the IRS will never email you. They won’t call you unless you are already in communications with them over an audit, or whatever the situation may be. Protect yourself from this IRS phishing scam and do not open these emails. Do not respond to them, and do not get concerned. The IRS will send you a paper letter if they have anything to say to you.
