Agency encourages taxpayers to remain vigilant year-round
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today wrapped up issuing its annual "Dirty Dozen" list of tax scams. The IRS reminds taxpayers to remain vigilant to these often aggressive and evolving schemes throughout the year.
This year's “Dirty Dozen” list highlights a wide variety of schemes that taxpayers may encounter at any time, although many may peak during tax-filing season. The schemes run the gamut from simple refund inflation scams to complex tax shelter deals. A common theme throughout all: Scams put taxpayers at risk.
