Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO, and founder of IRSALLSTAR, asks “What’s More Nerve Wracking Than Filing Tax Returns? …Getting Scammed!!!” and advises how to wisely choose a tax preparer.
Fairhope, AL, February 10 2023: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO, and founder of IRSALLSTAR.com, recently published an article on his website entitled “What’s More Nerve Wracking Than Filing Tax Returns? …Getting Scammed!!!,” in which Mr. Willis shares IRS tips for avoiding falling prey to tax scammers.
Willis states, “The 2022 federal tax filing season is in full swing.” He continues, adding, “Over the past few years tax season has given rise to a concern that many taxpayers find equally, if not more nerve-wracking as the task of getting federal tax returns filed. That concern involves how to avoid becoming a victim to any of the multitude of tax scams.” As Willis notes, “Some people find out tax returns have been filed in their name under their SSN before they file. They find out their identity has been stolen. Or they fall prey to some scammer that calls them on the phone and demands payment for outstanding tax liability that they do not owe.”
As Willis points out, “The IRS Criminal Investigation Division reminds taxpayers to take extra steps to always protect their identities, and to be especially astute when filing tax returns. In fiscal year 2022, IRS-CI identified $5.7 billion in tax fraud, initiated 1,388 criminal tax investigations, and obtained 699 criminal sentences for tax crimes. As you can see,” Willis writes, “the scammers are very busy. And, unfortunately, some of the scammers are people posing as tax preparers. In my mind this this the worst kind of criminal.”
Willis writes, “To guard against fraud this filing season, the IRS advises taxpayers first and foremost to choose a tax preparer wisely.” The IRS also advises, “Look for a preparer who is available year-round. Ask a tax preparer for their IRS Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). All paid preparers are required to have one. Don’t use a ghost preparer. They won’t sign a tax return they prepare for you. Also, keep in mind the following words of wisdom offered by the IRS.”
