The IRS does NOT use e-mail!

I can’t believe how many times I get an e-mail personally (or forwarded from a client) that claims to be from the “IRS”. Usually these e-mails state that a “Transaction has been declined’, or ‘Your Tax Payment Didn’t Clear” or some such nonsense…

Remember – the IRS does NOT use e-mail as a rule – no communications via e-mail is allowed due to fears of virus infections, spyware, malware, etc. So, if you get something like this, ignore & delete it, plus tell your friends.

If you have any thoughts or questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
