Bogus email scams are resurfacing, including one involving payments allegedly rejected by the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System. The email has a link that may download malicious software.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE NEVER SENDS AN EMAIL TO A TAXPAYER FOR ANY REASON AND CONSEQUENTLY WILL NEVER ASK FOR FINANCIAL INFORMATION VIA EMAIL, FAX, OR TELEPHONE. NEVER! IF YOU RECEIVE SUCH A REQUEST, IT IS BOGUS AND SHOULD BE DISREGARDED IMMEDIATELY.
