Tax season scams

During tax season, it’s important to be vigilant with your tax filing to prevent scams from happening to you.

Phone scams
Don’t give out personal information if someone calls claiming to be from the IRS. This is often a scam to steal your identity.

No signature
If your tax preparer won’t sign your tax return, they are likely not authorized to prepare taxes. Make sure your preparer has an IRS Preparer Tax Identification Number.

Identity theft
If you receive a notice from the IRS that more than one return has been filed using your Social Security number, your identity may have been fraudulently used. Contact the IRS immediately.

Large refunds
Beware of the preparer who promises large refunds if you split it with them. This often results in falsified deductions, which is tax fraud.
