Department of Revenue Services Commissioner Kevin Sullivan says one of the scams involves a fake taxpayer asking their tax preparer to make a last-minute change in where a tax refund is deposited.
Sullivan says tax preparers should verbally reconfirm information with their clients.
He says another scam targeting tax preparers involves a fake email from a tax software provider, asking for online accounts to be updated.
Sullivan’s office is working with the Internal Revenue Service to protect taxpayers. He says tax-related scams increase as the April 18 filing deadline nears.
