A warning for all EROs: the IRS announced today that scammers are contacting tax professionals and posing as IRS personnel, saying that they need to "verify" the EROs e-file acceptance letter. DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR EFIN or your acceptance letter to anyone over the phone! It's a SCAM!

EROs who receive contacts from individuals posing as the IRS should contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at www.tigta.gov to file a complaint. EROs who received a contact and disclosed their acceptance letter should contact the e-Services help desk immediately.
