The IRS is reporting a 400 percent surge in phishing and malware occurrences so far this tax season.
TMS II, LLC is warning people to look out for emails and text messages about:
- Your refund information
- Your filing status
- Your personal information
- Your PIN information
If a taxpayer receives an unsolicited email that appears to be from either the IRS e-services portal or an organization closely linked to the IRS, report it by sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
