Michael Trimarchi at the Bloomberg Bureau of National Affairs wrote an excellent article about the continued risk of phishing, as reported by the IRS:

“The stealing of personal information through phishing and identity theft are major concerns of the Internal Revenue Service in 2018, the agency said March 21.

The IRS, which released its annual list of the 12 most common tax schemes, warned employers and individual taxpayers to remain vigilant about aggressive and evolving schemes.

“The schemes can run the gamut from simple refund inflation scams to technical tax-shelter deals,” the IRS said in a March 21 news release ( IR-2018-66). Such scams put employers and individual taxpayers at risk, the agency said.
