Warning: 'Rejected'/'cancelled' tax transfer email is a scam

by: Amy Clancy, KIRO 7 Consumer Investigator Updated:

If you received an email today from the Internal Revenue Service notifying you of a "rejected" or "cancelled" tax transfer just delete it. 

It's a phishing scam, and clicking on the blue "tax report" could lead to prompts for personal information.

As KIRO 7 Consumer Investigators have warned before, the IRS never communicates with taxpayers via email, even if the email appears to be from "irs.gov."
