New Tax Scam Targeting Hotmail Users

The IRS has issued a warning to taxpayers that there is a new scam targeting Hotmail users. The scam is an attempt to steal financial and personal information. Per the IRS, the email subject line reads:

“Internal Revenue Service Email No. XXXX/ We’re processing your request soon/ TXXXXXX-XXXXXXXX

The email will lead the taxpayer to a fake Microsoft page where it will ask you for your personal information.

If you receive an unsolicited email claiming to be from the IRS you should forward it to phishing@irs.gov and then delete the email.

Please consult your tax advisor on all of the above issues.
