In the wake of the Hurricane Harvey making landfall in Texas recently, the IRS is reminding taxpayers to be careful to find recognized charitable groups for their donations. Unfortunately, scams abound in situations like these, as criminals impersonate charities to get money or private information from well-meaning taxpayers. These fraudulent schemes may involve contact by telephone, social media, email, or in-person solicitations.

The IRS has a search tool to find qualified charities; donations to these charities may be tax-deductible. You can find it here.
