IRS Alerts Taxpayers of Fake Tax Notice Emails
The IRS has issued an alert warning taxpayers about the latest tax scam involving fake CP 2000 notices. The fraudulent CP 2000 notices are typically attached to an email, attempting to bill taxpayers for unpaid taxes related to the Affordable Care Act. The CP 2000 can be a legitimate notice that the IRS mails to taxpayers through the U.S. Postal Service, but the IRS will never send as part of an email to taxpayers.
