Stay Alert for Tax Scams

Alloy Silverstein urges our clients to be cautious with their private information and to remain proactive in safeguarding per­sonal data from identity thieves.

With respect to email scams, know that the IRS will never contact you via email. Suspicious emails should be forwarded to and then deleted from the email account. If you are unsure about a notice, you can often validate the legitima­cy of a correspondence by performing a keyword search on the website or by contacting your Alloy Silverstein ac­countant.

Likewise, fake call centers continue to contact taxpayers with fictitious scenarios that demand immediate payment or even threaten arrest. Err on the side of caution and never provide your information or au­thorize payment over the phone or to an unknown email recipient.

As an added layer of protection, we en­courage using our secure Client Portal to transfer financial documents and anything that contains sensitive identifiable infor­mation. Contact us today if you do not yet have Portal access.
