During this time that we find ourselves in, the IRS is warning about coronavirus-related scams. Read more here.
Some highlights from the IRS News Release:
- The IRS isn’t going to call you asking to verify or provide your financial information so you can get an economic impact payment or your refund faster,
- Don’t open surprise emails or click on attachments or links.
- Taxpayers should watch not only for emails but text messages, websites and social media attempts that request money or personal information.
- Additional information regarding what to do if you feel you have received unsolicited emails, text messages or social media attempts to gather information that appear to be from either the IRS or an organization closely linked to the IRS can be found at the bottom of the IRS news release.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL DURING THIS TIME! If something doesn’t seem legitimate, just delete it. Go to irs.gov/coronavirus for the most up-to-date IRS information regarding coronavirus-related items.
