Tax Scams/Consumer Alerts

Tax Scams: English | Spanish | ASL
 

Alert: New Email Phishing Scam

The IRS has been alerted to a new email phishing scam. The emails appear to be from the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service and include a bogus case number and the following message:

“Your reported 2013 income is flagged for review due to a document processing error. Your case has been forwarded to the Taxpayer Advocate Service for resolution assistance. To avoid delays processing your 2013 filing contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service for resolution assistance.”

The recipient is directed to click on links that supposedly provide information about the "advocate" assigned to their case or that let them "review reported income."  The links lead to web pages that solicit personal information.

Taxpayers who get these messages should not respond to the email or click on the links. Instead, they should forward the scam emails to the IRS at phishing@irs.gov. For more information, visit the IRS's Report Phishing web page.

The Taxpayer Advocate Service is a legitimate IRS organization that helps taxpayers resolve federal tax issues that have not been resolved through the normal IRS channels. The IRS, including TAS, does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, texting or any social media.


Tax Scams

Don't fall victim to tax scams. Remember — if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you know of a tax fraud, you can report it to the IRS by sending completed Form 3949-A, Information Referral, to Internal Revenue Service, Fresno, CA 93888. You can download the form or call 1-800-829-3676 to order by mail.

Some of the other recent scams the IRS has seen include:

  • IR-2013-84, IRS Warns of Pervasive Telephone Scam
  • IR-2013-33, Don’t Fall Prey to the 2013 Dirty Dozen Tax Scams
  • IR-2011-73, IRS Urges Taxpayers to Avoid Becoming Victims of Tax Scams

Education is the best way to avoid the pitfalls of these “too good to be true” tax scams. For more information, see:


Phony Arguments

No matter how some things are sliced, they're still baloney. If someone tells you that you don't have to pay taxes, check out The Truth About Frivolous Tax Arguments. This IRS.gov exclusive addresses some of the more common false "legal" arguments made by those opposed to compliance with the federal tax laws. Each contention is briefly explained, followed by a discussion of the legal authority that rejects the contention. The second section deals with frivolous arguments encountered in collection due process cases. The final section illustrates penalties imposed on those pursuing frivolous cases.

IR-2011-23, IRS Debunks Frivolous Tax Arguments, highlights the issue and possible penalties.  

IR-2004-41 describes the increasingly strong penalties the courts have imposed from March 2003 to March 2004 on taxpayers who pursued frivolous cases to delay IRS collection actions.

IR-2003-28 details penalties the Tax Court imposed from April 2001 until early March 2003 for making frivolous Collection Due Process arguments.


Identity Theft Scams

The IRS has issued several consumer warnings about the fraudulent use of the IRS name or logo by scamsters trying to gain access to consumers’ financial information in order to steal their identity and assets. Scamsters will use the regular mail, telephone, fax or email to set up their victims. When identity theft takes place over the Internet (email), it is called phishing.

The IRS does not initiate taxpayer communications through email. Unsolicited email claiming to be from the IRS, or from an IRS-related component such as EFTPS, should be reported to the IRS at phishing@irs.gov.

Additionally, clicking on attachments to or links within an unsolicited email claiming to come from the IRS may download a malicious computer virus onto your computer.

You may also report instances of IRS-related phishing attempts and fraud to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1-800-366-4484.

Do you file taxes if you are unemployed   Generally, includible compensation for your most recent year of service is the amount of taxable wages and benefits you received from the employer that maintained a 403(b) account for your benefit during your most recent year of service. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed When figuring your includible compensation for your most recent year of service, keep in mind that your most recent year of service may not be the same as your employer's most recent annual work period. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed This can happen if your tax year is not the same as your employer's annual work period. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed When figuring includible compensation for your most recent year of service, do not mix compensation or service of one employer with compensation or service of another employer. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Most Recent Year of Service Your most recent year of service is your last full year of service, ending on the last day of your tax year that you worked for the employer that maintained a 403(b) account on your behalf. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Tax year different from employer's annual work period. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed   If your tax year is not the same as your employer's annual work period, your most recent year of service is made up of parts of at least two of your employer's annual work periods. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Example. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed A professor who reports her income on a calendar-year basis is employed on a full-time basis by a university that operates on an academic year (October through May). Do you file taxes if you are unemployed To figure her includible compensation for 2013, the professor's most recent year of service is her service from January through May 2013 and from October through December 2013. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Figuring Your Most Recent Year of Service To figure your most recent year of service, begin by determining what is a full year of service for your position. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed A full year of service is equal to full-time employment for your employer's annual work period. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed After identifying a full year of service, begin counting the service you have provided for your employer starting with the service provided in the current year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Part-time or employed only part of the year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed   If you are a part-time or a full-time employee who is employed for only part of the year, your most recent year of service is your service this year and your service for as many previous years as is necessary to total 1 full year of service. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed To determine your most recent year of service, add the following periods of service: Your service during the year for which you are figuring the limit on annual additions, and Your service during your preceding tax years until the total service equals 1 year of service or you have figured all of your service with the employer. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Example. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed You were employed on a full-time basis from July through December 2011 (1/2 year of service), July through December 2012 (1/2 year of service), and October through December 2013 (1/4 year of service). Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Your most recent year of service for computing your limit on annual additions for 2013 is the total of your service during 2013 (1/4 year of service), your service during 2012 (1/2 year of service), and your service during the months October through December 2011 (1/4 year of service). Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Not yet employed for 1 year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed   If, at the close of the year, you have not yet worked for your employer for 1 year (including time you worked for the same employer in all earlier years), use the period of time you have worked for the employer as your most recent year of service. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Includible Compensation After identifying your most recent year of service, the next step is to identify the includible compensation associated with that full year of service. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Includible compensation is not the same as income included on your tax return. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Compensation is a combination of income and benefits received in exchange for services provided to your employer. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Generally, includible compensation is the amount of income and benefits: Received from the employer who maintains your 403(b) account, and Must be included in your income.

Do you file taxes if you are unemployed These contributions would be based on includible compensation for the last year of service before retirement. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Cost of Incidental Life Insurance Includible compensation does not include the cost of incidental life insurance. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed If all of your 403(b) accounts invest only in mutual funds, then you have no incidental life insurance. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed If you have an annuity contract, a portion of the cost of that contract may be for incidental life insurance. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed If so, the cost of the insurance is taxable to you in the year contributed and is considered part of your basis when distributed. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Your employer will include the cost of your insurance as taxable wages in box 1 of Form W-2. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Not all annuity contracts include life insurance.

Do you file taxes if you are unemployed If you have determined that part of the cost of your annuity contract is for an incidental life insurance premium, you will need to determine the amount of the premium and subtract it from your includible compensation. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed To determine the amount of the life insurance premiums, you will need to know the following information. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed The value of your life insurance contract, which is the amount payable upon your death. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed The cash value of your life insurance contract at the end of the tax year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Your age on your birthday nearest the beginning of the policy year.

Do you file taxes if you are unemployed You can use Worksheet A, in chapter 9, to determine the cost of your incidental life insurance. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Example. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Your new contract provides that your beneficiary will receive $10,000 if you should die before retirement. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Your cash value in the contract at the end of the first year is zero. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Your current life insurance protection for the first year is $10,000 ($10,000 − 0). Do you file taxes if you are unemployed The cash value in the contract at the end of year two is $1,000, and the current life insurance protection for the second year is $9,000 ($10,000 – $1,000). Do you file taxes if you are unemployed The 1-year cost of the protection can be calculated by using Figure 3-1, Table of One-Year Term Premiums for $1,000 Life Insurance Protection . Do you file taxes if you are unemployed The premium rate is determined based on your age on your birthday nearest the beginning of the policy year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Figure 3-1.

Do you file taxes if you are unemployed 07 Figuring Includible Compensation for Your Most Recent Year of Service You can use Worksheet B in chapter 9 to determine your includible compensation for your most recent year of service. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Example. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Floyd has been periodically working full-time for a local hospital since September 2011. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed He needs to figure his limit on annual additions for 2014. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed The hospital's normal annual work period for employees in Floyd's general type of work runs from January to December. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed During the periods that Floyd was employed with the hospital, the hospital has always been eligible to provide a 403(b) plan to employees. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Additionally, the hospital has never provided the employees with a 457 deferred compensation plan, a transportation fringe benefit plan, or a cafeteria plan. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Floyd has never worked abroad and there is no life insurance provided under the plan. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Table 3-3 shows the service Floyd provided to his employer, his compensation for the periods worked, his elective deferrals, and his taxable wages. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Table 3-3. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Floyd's Compensation Note. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed This table shows information Floyd will use to figure includible compensation for his most recent year of service. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed   Year Years of Service Taxable Wages Elective Deferrals 2014 6/12 of  a year $42,000 $2,000 2013 4/12 of  a year $16,000 $1,650 2012 4/12 of  a year $16,000 $1,650 Before Floyd can figure his limit on annual additions, he must figure includible compensation for his most recent year of service. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Because Floyd is not planning to work the entire 2014 year, his most recent year of service will include the time he is planning to work in 2014 plus time he worked in the preceding 3 years until the time he worked for the hospital totals 1 year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed If the total time he worked is less than 1 year, Floyd will treat it as if it were 1 year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed He figures his most recent year of service shown in the following list. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Time he will work in 2014 is 6/12 of a year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Time worked in 2013 is 4/12 of a year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed All of this time will be used to determine Floyd's most recent year of service. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Time worked in 2012 is 4/12 of a year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Floyd only needs 2 months of the 4 months he worked in 2012 to have enough time to total 1 full year. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Because he needs only one-half of the actual time he worked, Floyd will use only one-half of his income earned during that period to calculate wages that will be used in figuring his includible compensation. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed Using the information provided in Table 3-3, wages for Floyd's most recent year of service are $66,000 ($42,000 + $16,000 + $8,000). Do you file taxes if you are unemployed His includible compensation for his most recent year of service is figured as shown in Table 3-4. Do you file taxes if you are unemployed After figuring his includible compensation, Floyd determines his limit on annual additions for 2014 to be $52,000, the lesser of his includible compensation, $70,475 (Table 3-4), and the maximum amount of $52,000.
