Tax-related scams: A detailed insight on how scammers take advantage of this tax season and trick victims

As it is tax season in the US, scammers are flooding US citizens’ email inboxes with tax-related phishing scams. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as US citizens are busy filing their taxes, scammers are even more busy in targeting US taxpayers with new scams. It is to be noted that these scammers not only impersonate IRS and tax authorities but also tax-preparation and accounting companies.
