IRS warning of new phishing scam

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Apr 2, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The IRS is warning people about a new email phishing scheme.

According to the IRS, the fake email says your 2013 income is flagged for review and you need to follow a series of links and provide information to a taxpayer advocate service.

The taxpayer advocate service is a legitimate organization but they will not email you for any reason,.

Instead, you should forward the scam email directly to the IRS.

Email it to phising@irs.gov.
