IRS warns of possible refund scam

PHOENIX

The Internal Revenue Service is warning taxpayers who are expecting a refund of a possible scam. The department has received copies of an email that has an official-looking IRS logo at the top and states that the taxpayer needs to click on a link and fill out a form in order to receive their tax refund. According to the IRS, most taxpayers have already received their tax refund or it is on the way. The IRS does not email taxpayers for personal or financial information. The only form a taxpayer needs to fill out for a refund is a federal income tax return. Anyone who receives a suspicious-looking email claiming to be from the IRS can send a copy of it to phishing@irs.gov.
