Word to the wise: THE IRS DOES NOT INITIATE CONTACT VIA EMAIL.
I’m seeing some good phishing scams coming through. People have so many questions about paying taxes and dealing with the IRS that the phishing mails seem really plausible. The IRS is on top of it, but that doesn’t help if you give the phisher your social security number .
On one of my work forums people discussed the rebates for their residents for days, trying to advise each other and get the right information. [Yes, a tax lawyer finally chimed in with the answers preceded by many declarations of THIS IS NOT TAX ADVICE etc etc etc. ]
Anyway, be careful. I’m just sayin’.
