April Fools’ Day arrives during the peak of the annual tax-filing season, so it’s appropriate that we remind folks of the myriad tax schemes out there.
This year’s Tax Scams range from the perennial identity theft phishing attempts to fake charitable deductions to frivolous tax arguments, which themselves are detailed separately here.
There also are Web sites that, at least in name, seem like the real IRS deal but, says one Congressman, could be trying to lure unsuspecting filers into thinking that advice and offers on those faux IRS sites are government sanctioned.
So, during this time when taxes and tricksters often team up, be alert and a bit skeptical. If you fall for a tax hoax, the joke will be on you and it’s not a laughing matter.
