[Best Syndication News] The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is reminding taxpayers to watch out for twelve different tax scams when preparing and filing your tax returns this year. The IRS calls these tax scams the “dirty dozen.” The IRS says that it is too good to be true, well it probably is and you should exercise caution when this seems to be the case. Tax schemes are illegal they warn and can lead to prison time and fines to both the scammer as well as the person filing the taxes.

Watch out and Avoid these Dirty Dozen Tax Scams:

1. Return Preparer Fraud – The tax person preparing the documents to file will save the taxpayer money, but in turn the tax preparer will charge an extra high fee for the service. If the numbers are not legitimate you are responsible for the information to be correct. Tax preparers might promise getting you a huge refund but often take more for their fee too. Ask for their preparer tax identification number (PTIN) and shop around for what their fees are before hiring them and ask for references from others that have used their services.
