A Must Read to Avoid Phony IRS Websites

A warning was just issued by the IRS that a new tax scam is out. The phony site offers an E-Services online registration page look that’s identical to the real IRS page. Criminals use these websites in an attempt to get your personal and financial information to steal your identity or money.

The official IRS website is www.irs.gov. It is important to know that the real website ends in .gov; scams will often provide sites that end in .org, .com, .net, etc.

Another important fact is that the IRS never contacts anyone by email to request personal information. If you receive an unsolicited email that claims to be from the IRS, you should report it by sending it to phishing@irs.gov. Knowing this information will greatly reduce the risk of getting scammed by any fake IRS sites. As always please contact your personal tax advisor about all of the above issues.
