“Tax Transcript” Email Scam

The scammers are back at it again, they seem to never take any days off. This time they are impersonating the IRS and are claiming to be sending you your tax transcript in order to trick you into opening documents that contain malware. The scammers are pretending to be from “IRS Online” and have been using the title “Tax Account Transcript” (or something close to this title) to try to get taxpayers to open the email.

As a reminder, the IRS WILL NEVER send unsolicited emails to the public and would never email documents containing your personal information. If you should receive the email the IRS urges taxpayers not to open the email or the attachment.

Please consult your tax advisor on all the above information.
