IRS Warns: Beware look alike sites

TULSA - The IRS says criminals use these look alike sites to get personal and financial information out of people to steal their money or identities.

The actual IRS e-Services page offers Web-based products for tax preparers and payers, not the general public.

The official IRS website is www.irs.gov do not go to sites ending in something else like .com or .org

If you find a suspicious website claiming to be the IRS copy and paste the link into an email and send it to phishing@irs.gov with the subject line "Suspicious website".

Also be aware the IRS does not contact taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information.  The IRS will also not contact you by text message or through social media accounts.
