IRS’ List of “Dirty Dozen”
Posted by Armanino Nonprofit Team
The IRS has released its annual list of “Dirty Dozen” tax scams for 2013. This list provides a variety of common scams taxpayers can encounter at any point during the year.
Impersonation of charities is one of the “Dirty Dozen” this year. Following major disasters, it’s common for scam artists to impersonate charities to get money or private information from well-intentioned taxpayers. Scam artists can use a variety of tactics. Some scammers operate bogus charities and may contact people by telephone or email to solicit money or for financial information. Make sure you are donating to recognized charities or research that a charity is exempt on the IRS’ website using Select Check.
