Tax Professionals Targeted by New E-mail Scam

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has issued an urgent warning to tax professionals regarding yet another e-mail scam, this time involving a fake website related to the IRS' e-Services accounts.

The agency wrote:

"The Internal Revenue Service today issued an urgent alert to tax professionals who use IRS e-services to beware of an email asking them to update their accounts and directing them to a fake website.

The subject line for the fraudulent email is "Security Awareness for Tax Professionals." The "From" line is "Your e-Services Team." It has both an IRS logo and an e-services logo that hyperlinks to a URL verified as a phishing site. The spoofing site poses as an e-services registration page.

Tax professionals should always go directly to IRS.gov to access e-services, never click on any links provided in emails. Tax professionals who receive a suspicious email should send it as an attachment to [email protected] and then delete it. Recipients should not click on any links."
