With the passing of the stimulus bill, please, particularly for your parents and grandparents, be aware of IRS scam calls asking you to provide banking information so you can receive your stimulus check. Please remind your loved ones that the IRS rarely calls individual taxpayers, and when they do, it’s usually well after the taxpayer has received written notice of whatever issue the taxpayer is handling. You should treat any phone call out of the blue from someone claiming to be from the IRS as a SCAM, and provide no information to them. If you would like to confirm with the IRS that there is no issue, you can call the IRS directly at 1.800.829.1040.
