Many of your supporters are shopping for Valentine's Day gifts, and reminding them to shop at smile.amazon.com can increase donations for Illinois Masonic Home. Amazon has a large variety of gifts that are perfect for Valentine's Day including electronics, jewelry, clothing, and more.
It is that time of year again, tax time. During this time of year, the scam phone calls increase to consumers to scare or trick people into paying money or providing personal confidential information that can be used to steal or compromise their identity.
Here are some tips from IRS.gov to help you avoid becoming a victim:
There are things the IRS will NOT do:
If you don’t owe taxes, or have no reason to think that you do, do not give ANY information. Hang up immediately. To report a call, contact TIGTA at 800-366-4484.
Stay alert to scams that use the IRS as a lure. Tax scams can happen any time of the year, not just at tax time. For more visit “Tax Scams and Consumer Alerts” on IRS.gov.
Report all unsolicited email claiming to be from the IRS or an IRS-related function to email@example.com.
Each and every taxpayer has a set of fundamental rights they should be aware of when dealing with the IRS. Visit https://www.irs.gov/Taxpayer-Bill-of-Rights to explore your rights and the IRS obligations to protect yourself from these scams.
