Newest IRS Scam - Don't Respond

Springfield Police Department, Springfield, VT
The newest scam is one claiming to be from the IRS. The email comes complete with a fake IRS CP 2000 form and claims the income reported on your tax return does not match the income reported by your employer.

It is purposely designed to get you worried, so that you stop thinking and just react. To confuse you even further, the bad guys claim this has something to do with the Affordable Care Act.

Remember, the IRS will never initiate contact with you to collect overdue taxes by an email or text message. 

If you do receive any emails, text messages, or even live phone calls about this, do not respond. You can always just hang up the phone.

If you are concerned that the contact is legitimate, please don’t hesitate to call the IRS at 1-800-366-4484 to confirm it is a scam.
