Tax Season Woes

Another tax season is upon us and it isn’t just the IRS out to get your money.  Scammers and phishers are looking to trick people into giving up their personal information or downloading files containing malicious software.  Remember, as always, be aware of suspicious links and requests via email (especially), but also over the phone and regular old postal mail too!  The IRS doesn’t need to ask for (and won’t!) any more personal information to process your tax returns or distribute your refund.  You already gave them what they needed when you filed.

You can get more information from the IRS themselves at the irs.gov site.  They even have a helpful youtube video [or see below].
