IRS Establishes e-Mail Box for Taxpayers to Report Phony e-Mails

Irs_logo_230The IRS has established an electronic mailbox for taxpayers to send information about suspicious e-mails they receive which claim to come from the IRS.  The IRS’s new mail box allows taxpayers to send copies of possibly fraudulent e-mails involving misuse of the IRS name and logo to the IRS for investigation. Taxpayers should send the information to: phishing@irs.gov.

For more information about the IRS's new mail box, see the IRS's press release.  For more information about how to protect yourself from electronic tax scams, see:
