SCAM ALERT! Fraudulent IRS Phone Calls
Someone claiming to be from the IRS calls or leaves a message threatening confiscation of your assets or arrest.
The IRS rarely makes phone calls and you will always receive a letter first!
If you receive such a call, here is what you can do.
You can report the fraud at 1-800-366-4484 or online at https://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact_report_scam.shtml.
This year your tax preparer is required to ask you if you had health insurance last year. If not, your tax refund may be decreased or your taxes payable may be increased.
The new tax is called "Shared Responsbility Payment" and is on your 1040 Tax Form. For more information on the Shared Responsbility Payment, visit the IRS website
