Latest IRS Scam Uses Postal Mail, Email and Text Messages
Your BBB® hears daily from people with concerns relating to the IRS. Of course, these scams change all the time. Here is the newest version making the rounds.
Criminals are sending bogus emails with attachments, text messages and postal mail claiming to be from the IRS, using a phony Form CP 2000 and claiming the form relates to the Affordable Care Act. This form is normally mailed by the IRS when income reported by employers does not match the income reported on a tax return.
This is being investigated by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.
