Beware phony IRS CP 2000 Form
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – There is a new IRS scam making the rounds. They send you a phony IRS CP 2000 Form and claim the income reported on your tax return does not match the income reported by your employer.
This is meant to get you worried. To confuse you further, the bad guys claim this has something to do with the Affordable Care Act.
You might receive emails with attached phony forms, text messages and even live calls to your phone about this. You need to know that the IRS will never initiate contact with you to collect overdue taxes by an email, text message or phone call.
If you get any emails, text messages, old-time snail mail or even phone calls about this, do not click on anything, do not open attachments, do not reply and if it is a call, hang up the phone.
If you receive a CP 2000 Form in the mail and doubt it is legit, you can always call the IRS at 1-800-366-4484 to confirm if it’s a scam.
