    Hello,

    It's that time of year again. Tax time!

    Be on the lookout for IRS and tax related phishing scams in your inbox.

    Do not respond or click on any links. Immediately delete these messages!

    The IRS will never make first contact to you with an email message.

    Friendly reminder: The IRS will not make initial contact with you by email. Report email scams claiming to be from the IRS.

    It appears I received at least 8 of them in the last week:
