It has come to our attention that a fraudulent email (see sample below) is being issued to tax preparers asking them to update their e-Services information. This email WAS NOT generated by the Internal Revenue Service.

The links provided in the email are designed to capture e-Services usernames and passwords. If you engage with or respond to this email, you will put your sensitive information as well as your clients’ at risk of theft.

If you receive an email like this, DO NOT click on the links or take any other action. There is no need to call the IRS. Simply delete the email. The IRS is aware of the scam, and issued a QuickAlert on Nov. 24.
