Current Issues

Tax Alert: IRS warns again on payroll scam as tax season begins:

Be on the lookout for an email scam focusing on payroll records. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has been made aware that another email scam is making its way across company payroll and human resource departments which uses a corporate officer's name to request employee Forms W-2.

While this latest round of scam emails is targeted to payroll and human resource departments, all taxpayers should be aware that scammers are constantly attempting to trick taxpayers into providing personally identifiable information, including names, Social Security numbers, and filing status.
