This years’ tax scam is receiving an unauthorized refund. Tax payers are receiving phone calls at home telling them that the refund they have received was sent in error. Taxpayers are then being told to wire the funds to an account provided by the caller.
If the IRS needs to contact you, they will do so by regular mail. The IRS does not call or email taxpayers. If you receive a call as I have outlined, please report it to the IRS.
