BEWARE OF TAX SCAMMERS DURING COVID-19

The IRS is reminding taxpayers to make sure they follow official IRS guidance and social media, especially right now during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The IRS official guidance and social media will be the best resource for finding out information and avoiding scammers.  Remember, the IRS will not call you and leave threatening voicemails.  Do not give your social security number out over the telephone if someone is calling you.  If you have never even received an IRS notice, you should be especially suspicious of threatening calls from someone claiming to be the IRS.

You can find IRS on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and LinkedIn.  When attempting to follow or access different IRS social media accounts, make sure you verify it is the correct IRS social media account, and not an imposter account, here first.  You can also sign up for IRS email notifications here.  E-news for tax professionals can be found here.


If you have any questions about possible scams, tax law matters, estate planning, divorce, child custody, probate, civil litigation, unlawful detainers, or business law, we hope you will reach out to Mendes Weed, LLP, at (925) 390-3222.  We are here to help you during this difficult time.
