IRS Scams

My spam filter intercepted three emails allegedly from the IRS telling me that a payment to them had been rejected because of a problem with my employer identification number. I also have been receiving calls and emails from my clients on the same topic.

The IRS does not use email to make initial contacts with taxpayers. These emails are a phishing scam trying to get information from you that can be used to steal your money. Do not respond and do not open any links. You will regret it if you do.
