Tax season is always the time when tax scammers increase their activities. Although the warning has been given many times before, it is does no harm to repeat it. Do not respond to emails that come in the name of the IRS. The IRS will never send you an email for any reason the least of which is to ask for personal details such as your bank account, credit card or Social Security numbers. These are different forms of phishing scams.
