Beware of suspicious IRS-related communications

With tax season upon us, the number of scam attempts purportly coming from the IRS increases.  The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information.  This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media channels.

The IRS has posted additional helpful information on their website on what to do when you receive a suspicious IRS-related communication.
