Emails posing to be from IRS agencies are not new, but this year they seem to have amped up. We want to bring to your attention the newest scam. This email is from firstname.lastname@example.org and notifies the taxpayer they need to pay a failure to file fee for not filing Form 5471. The email tells the recipient to see the attached file for more information. Opening such attachments can compromise the user’s computer. It’s important to remind your clients that they will not receive email from the IRS.
