Every tax season, the IRS reports a surge in tax refund scams. Consumers should be on heightened alert to the nature of these scams so as not to fall victim to thieves.
The following are some general tips you should keep in mind:
- The IRS will never call you or email you asking you to return a refund you received. If you receive such a call or email, rest assured it is a scam.
- Rivermark will also never call you and ask you to provide your account number or social security number to us. We already have that information.
