'Dirty Dozen' Tax Scams for 2012

2. Phishing

Phishing is typically carried out with the help of an unsolicited email or a fake website used to lure potential victims, like this recent IRS refund email scam. This type of scam usually asks a person to provide valuable information. In turn, a criminal has the ability to commit identity or financial theft.

If you receive an unsolicited email that appears to be from either the IRS or an organization closely linked to the IRS, report to phishing@irs.gov.
