The IRS does NOT use e-mail! Tax-related identity theft has increased dramatically over the past several years and IS happening in Southeast Kansas too. Beware and be sure to take any correspondence you receive to your CPA. Currently, the IRS has over 650,000 identity-theft cases in its inventory. Unfortunately, the crooks have been having success and have only been encouraged to do more. Be on the lookout and be sure to let us know if you receive any correspondence.
