A Warning for Taxpayers:  per IRS “Report Phishing and Online Scams”  website

Internet and telephone scams are a growing issue in the U.S. and we at Schutte & Hilgendorf spend a great deal of time and expertise protecting our clients and their information from theft and hackers.  We continually upgrade and update our systems, software, hardware and procedures to keep you and your information safe from predators.


However, we cannot protect the information you have on your own computers or information you may be asked to give out over the phone.  So we would like to help you to avoid the latest in predatory behavior:  IRS contact is never initiated by robocall, email, text messages or social media channel per information distributed by the IRS. 


If you have received any sort of communication from the IRS other than by letter from the U.S. Postal service, please do not interact with the communication.  Go to this link: https://www.irs.gov/privacy-disclosure/report-phishing and follow the suggested actions as per this IRS official website posting.


If you are uncertain about any communication you have received, please contact us or the IRS before responding.
