Don't be fooled by one of these tax scams!
The IRS has just released their lists of the top scams that taxpayers fall prey too. Be careful that you are not one of them. If you are solicited by someone saying that they can save you money, get you lost refunds and get you free money from your tax return be very careful that you are not a victim of one of these scams.
If you believe you have been contacted about one of these scams make sure to report the person or parties immediately because if and when they are caught all the returns they prepared will then be re-examined. Once re-examined those returns will be adjusted and will most likely destroy your life. These illegal scams will result in significant interest, penalties and possible criminal prosecution.
What to watch out for?
When you sign your return make sure the person preparing the returns has signed it and put his/her information on the line before yours. If they have not, you should not pay for the return or submit it.
