Ingenious Scam Targets Taxpayers
These scammers have duplicated the look of official IRS mail notices, which to the untrained eye would lead one to believe a notice was really from the IRS.
So be extremely cautious of any notice you may have received from the IRS. If a notice is demanding immediate payment and there has not been any prior contact by the IRS over the issue, then the notice is probably from a scammer. Reports indicate the initial letters were numbered CP-2000.
Don’t be a victim, have any notice you receive from the IRS, or any tax authority for that matter, reviewed by this office before taking action.
