BE AWARE of scammers sending fake notices to trick people into sending money or ‘verifying’ their personal information, such as:

  • Paper CP2000 Notices (via US Mail) showing a balance due with an address that is NOT AN IRS ADDRESS
  • Email notices indicating that you have a refund due with enclosed form. The form is NOT FROM THE IRS

Authentic IRS notices DO NOT demand that you send payments via pre-paid or gift cards.
Authentic IRS notices ARE NOT sent via email, text, or social media.
