Watch Out For IRS Tax Scams

There have been reported incidents of swindlers using an IRS pitch as a 2016 IRS Tax scam. One such incident happened to Brett. He panicked after hearing a phone message that the IRS was about to investigate him. Brett is a 43 year old contractor from the County of Morrow. He wondered whether he had missed anything in regards to his Free Turbo Tax 2015 application. So he decided to make a call back and then his worry turned to anger. There are lots of scammers out there especially as the Taxes 2016 period gets near.

At this time of the year, thieves and con artists fine tune their tricks and up their game in order to swindle individuals, often threatening them with jail terms and deportation. The IRS has now issued an alert to the public, warning of the phone scam and other scams people are likely to be exposed to at this time of making their tax returns. Turbo Tax 2015 should help people allay their fears in regards to their 2016 taxes.

The Ohio State Attorney General has been fielding questions and complaints from local residents, especially those from the counties of Morrow, Fairfield and Franklin. It is expected that con artists will pull scams pretending to be from the government as this helps their scams seem more legitimate.
