Watch Out for IRS Email Scams

With tax season in full swing, the IRS again warns consumers about the possibility of email scams in which you get an email that looks like it comes from the IRS and that asks you for personal and/or financial information, supposedly so that they can process your return, send your refund, etc. But those are scams; the IRS never asks for personal or financial information via email.

If you receive such an email, do not open any links, do not download any attachments, and do not respond. You also can report the fraudulent email to the IRS. Without opening any links or attachments, forward the email to Then delete the email from your mailbox.
