Sandy Botkin – It’s Tax Scam Time… Watch Out!
Sandy Botkin, Noted CPA and attorney reminds us yet again that it’s IRS Scam time. We’re not talking about what the IRS is doing but rather scammers pretending to be from the government and either demanding money from you or demanding data that they can use to steal your identity. The first rule to understand is that the IRS will never call you first, asking for money. Their primary collection tool is the US Mail. If someone calls you asking for money, hang up. That will eliminate many potential scams and keep you safe.
