Beware of Phony IRS Websites
is warning the public about a new taxscam that uses a website that mimics the IRS e-Services online registration
page. The real IRS e-Services page offers Web-based products for tax preparers
and payers—not the general public. The phony Web page looks almost identical to
the real one.
The official IRS website is www.irs.gov.
Some of the phony websites end in .com, .net, .org or other designations
instead of .gov. If you find a suspicious website that claims to be the
IRS, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org; put
"Suspicious website" in the subject line.
