Officials warn about new phishing scams
Officials are warning people about phishing scammers this tax season.
They say scammers are using techniques either by phone or email to steal tens of millions of dollars from unsuspecting victims.
IRS officials are urging residents not to give out their personal information or provide any funds. They advise them to immediately hang up and contact the IRS office.
IRS officials say they saw a surge in scams last year and almost two million people have been targeted since 2013.
