Think twice before you respond to any e-mails you get from IRS.

The Service is reporting a series of new phishing attempts. The sophisticated messages use IRS’ own logo and graphics and appear to come from a legitimate .gov e-mail address.

The messages highlight year-end financial/accounting procedures and ask you to confirm or submit account numbers and other financial info.

Remember: IRS never e-mails taxpayers directly regarding individual account or tax information.

If you get one of these messages, IRS asks that you forward it to phishing@irs.gov so they can investigate it.
