Pennsylvania Department of Revenue warns of tax-related scams

The survey found that the overall state and local tax rate takes 14.89-percent of the income of an IL resident who has the median US household income or $8,299 a year. "You can hang up the phone and contact the IRS directly and ask if you owe them money". "If they have an issue with their taxes in any form, they will first get a traditional letter".

According to the IRS, Americans left $1.1 billion in unclaimed federal income tax refunds in 2014.

One of these scams, officials said, involves cyber criminals filing falsified tax returns and obtaining fraudulent tax refunds from taxpayers by posing as IRS officials and debt collectors. "But during the call, the scam artist who's representing the IRS, misdirects the consumer to returning the money to the actual scam artist instead of the legitimate IRS". That means April 17, 2018, is the last day for people who didn't file their returns in 2014.

A part-time data entry clerk stole tax returns she was working on and used the information to file fraudulent tax returns requesting large refunds. In Vermont, 27,000 people failed to file their return in 2014, leaving behind about $2 million.

Read any IRS notices you might receive very carefully.

Forest fire traps over 30 persons in Tamil Nadu; 15 rescued
An Indian Air Force helicopter patrols during a rescue mission in the Kurangani hills in Tamil Nadu's Theni district on Monday. Two groups of 36 tourists, mostly women, were on a trekking expedition to Karunkani hills and were caught in a forest fire.

Other things scammers often do - but the IRS will not do - include asking for credit or debit card numbers over the phone, call taxpayers about an unexpected refund, demand that taxes be paid without giving taxpayers the opportunity to question or appeal the amount owed, and threaten to immediately bring in law enforcement to have the taxpayer arrested for not paying. "To whatever extent you can, try to file your tax return early", advises McBride.

CT took the runner-up position for highest local and state taxes, while Alaska had the lowest at just 5.67-percent of a median U.S. Household income. You may also want to check the security of any account that might be listed on your tax return, including your brokerage accounts. For example, a single person with three or more children could qualify for the EITC if they made less than $46,997.

IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by telephone. Also, use strong and unique passwords for each online account.

Now is prime time for tax identity theft, as millions of individuals file their personal tax returns leading up to the April 17 filing deadline.
