WPCNR COUNTY CLARION-LEDGER. From County Legislator Benjamin Boykin. March 14, 2018:
With tax season upon us, the Internal Revenue Service is warning about scammers using a range of tactics to take advantage of taxpayers.
Thousands of people have lost millions of dollars and their personal information to tax scams. Scammers use regular mail, telephone, or email to set up individuals, businesses, payroll and tax professionals.
The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information.
