How To Spot The Latest Tax Scams

Unfortunately, fraud-related schemes continue to be on the rise. Recognizing common signs of a tax scam could help you avoid falling for one. First, remember the IRS almost always contacts people via old-fashioned snail mail. So, if you get a phone call, text message or email claiming to be from the agency, be on high alert. Below are some other red flags to look out for.

Fake IRS Emails

  • Phishing emails are a particular popular tool for scammers purporting to be from the IRS.
  • There's absolutely no reason you should be getting an email from the IRS about your tax return, so if one arrives in your inbox, forward the email to

Stimulus Check Claims

  • Fraudulent text messages will also be more popular this tax season - many targeting people who are still waiting on their stimulus checks from the government. 
  • Criminals are impersonating the IRS and asking taxpayers for banking or personal identifying information. Taxpayers should not provide information or respond to any text messages whatsoever.

"Ghost Preparers"

  • By law, anyone who prepares or assists in preparing someone else's federal taxes must sign each return and include their Preparer Tax Identification Number before sending it to the IRS.
  • Ghost preparers often insist on cash payment and fail to provide a receipt. A licensed tax preparer will always sign your return and provide a receipt.

Suspiciously High Refunds

  • Obviously, you want the biggest refund possible. But use some common sense to weed out the dishonest types who might exaggerate your income or deductions to unlawfully boost your return.
  • If you're told, "with the whole COVID thing and with all these grants the government's giving, your going to be getting a big refund," that's probably a bad sign. 
  • Scammers can get the victim to believe they owe a bunch of money to the IRS, but if they pay a fee immediately, the agency will waive the debt. 

If you do owe money, the IRS will send you several letters by snail mail before ever calling you by phone, according to the IRS website.
