IRS Warns of Prepaid Debit Card Scam

 

Beall Barclay & Company, HISID's audit company, recently shared the following notice and we wanted to share this important information:

 

 

The Internal Revenue Service has issued a warning cautioning taxpayers and tax professionals about a new scam revolving around the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS), in which criminals are calling innocent taxpayers demanding they make an immediate tax payment through a prepaid debit card. 

 

The IRS has been hearing reports about the scam around the country. The scam is not new, but in a new twist, the fraudster claims to be an IRS employee and tells the victim about two certified letters that have supposedly been sent through the mail but returned as undeliverable. The criminal threatens the taxpayer with arrest if a payment isn’t made right away via prepaid debit card. The fraudster informs the victim the card is linked to the EFTPS system when it actually is completely controlled by the fraudster. The scammer warns the taxpayer not to contact their tax preparer, an attorney or their local IRS office until after making the payment.

 

The IRS noted that the EFTPS is a free service offered by the Treasury Department for paying taxes, either through the internet or by phone, and doesn’t require taxpayers to use a prepaid debit card. Since it’s an automated system, taxpayers don’t receive any phone calls from the IRS. Taxpayers have different options for paying an authentic tax bill and aren’t required to use a specific method.

 

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen notes, "Just because tax season is over, scams and schemes do not take the summer off. People should stay vigilant against IRS impersonation scams. People should remember that the first contact they receive from IRS will not be through a random, threatening phone call."

 

Remember:

  • The IRS will not initiate contact with you by email, text or social media.

  • If you receive a scam phone call, you can report the incident to Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at 1.800.366.4484. Do not engage the caller, and do not give out any personal information.

  • The IRS rarely contacts you by phone without having made an attempt to send you a notice by mail. If you're not sure whether a call is legitimate, hang up and call the IRS back at 1.800.829.1040.

  • If you receive a scam email, don't respond or click on the links. You can forward the scam emails to the IRS at phishing@irs.gov.

  • The IRS will not threaten arrest or use abusive language on the phone.

  • The IRS will not request payment for taxes over the phone using prepaid debit cards or wire transfers. If you want to make a legitimate payment for taxes by credit card, you can do so via the IRS web site. Don't follow links to the site via an email that you don't recognize. You can always visit irs.gov and use the search box feature.

hi hiking trails master plan

 

Some of you may be interested in taking a look at the Holiday Island Trails Master Plan. About 18 months ago, the Holiday Island Board of Commissioners approached the Holiday Island Hikers to see if they would assist in preparing the plan. Their stated desire for the plan at the time was to explore the possibilities of building hiking trails in the green spaces in Holiday Island. This was in recognition of the fact that hiking and mountain biking is close to the top of the list of amenities people are looking for these days when looking for a place to live and/or retire. As such it was necessary for Holiday Island to provide such an amenity if we are to grow. The HISID BOC created an ad hoc committee made up of mostly HI Hiker members to prepare the plan and as you probably know, we were provided assistance from the National Park Service, have recently been awarded a $24,000 grant from the State, and have built one trail. So we are well on our way to implementing the plan. In the BOC's December 7th meeting, the board approved the plan.

 

Starting in January, we will be needing volunteers to work on the Bobcat trail. The Holiday Island Hikers is also now a 501c3 organization so we are soliciting tax deductible donations to be used as matching funds for building the trail. I can assure you that the Bobcat trail, once built, will be equal to many of the trails that we drive many miles to experience. So this is a project well worth our effort. I look forward to any feedback you can provide on the plan and the projects. And look forward to working with many of you on building the trails.
