I received an email from the IRS saying I should confirm my personal information. Is it a scam?

The IRS never initiates communication with taxpayers through email or asks for taxpayers personal information through this method. With “Phishing” scams, criminals try to steal your money and identity by sending a message asking for your personal information. Scams can also be made by telephone, fax, web sites and social networking sites. If you receive a fraudulent email that claims to be from the IRS, forward this message to the IRS at the following address: phishing@irs.gov
