April 15 deadline to file taxes is right around the corner, but an IRS
spokesperson said rushing to file could mean falling for a scam.

con people out of their money during tax season. Their methods may include
emails, and even Facebook and Twitter.
Jenkins said the IRS uses only one way to contact people.
correspond through the U.S. Postal Service, and maybe follow up by the phone,"
Jenkins said. "But again, if there's an email, it's probably a scam, a phishing
attempt to get you to provide personal information."
said if you receive something in the mail and you think it's a scam, 9 times
out of 10, it is.
you suspect a scam attempt, contact the IRS directly at 1-800-TAX-1040.
