IRS: Beware of Phony Refund Scheme

The IRS recently provided information through its website regarding fraudulent offers regarding tax filings and refunds.  Among those targeted are senior citizens, working families and church members.  Be on the alert since unscrupulous persons, acting as businesses, are attempting to swindle you and make you believe you’re going to receive free money from the government, and that you’re entitled to refunds or credits when none are due to you.

See the entire story on this fraudulent scheme here, and for more information on finding a reputable tax preparer or other schemes affecting Tri-State residents, either visit or call 473-0202 or toll-free (800) 359-0979.
