The IRS will never call you, they will never send you an email.  If you receive a call from someone saying they're with the government or the IRS and demanding money, HANG UP!  The IRS only sends collection or official correspondence via US Mail.  


Phishing is the digital cousin of phone scams. Perpetrators use e-mails, text messages, websites and social media to bait taxpayers into providing their personal information or clicking a compromised link that can then be used to install malware onto a computer or other device.  Beware of suspicious looking emails with lookalike addresses or subscripts.
