Issue Number: Dirty Dozen

Inside This Issue

Today, the IRS announced that the “Dirty Dozen” tax scams for 2021 will be issued in a four-part series, starting Monday, June 28. Just like in prior years, this “Dirty Dozen” will highlight a variety of common scams. While the income tax filing deadline has passed for many, some may be waiting to hear from the IRS about a refund, an Economic Impact Payment, advance Child Tax Credit payments or other tax benefit. The IRS encourages taxpayers to be vigilant, as this can be a peak season for scammers. These schemes can continue throughout the year with multiple variations as con artists work to catch people off guard.

This year’s “Dirty Dozen” will be separated into the following categories:

  • 6/28: Pandemic-related scams like Economic Impact Payment theft.
  • 6/29: Personal information cons including phishing, ransomware and phone ‘vishing’.
  • 6/30: Ruses focusing on unsuspecting victims like fake charities and senior/immigrant fraud.
  • 7/1: Schemes that promote abusive structures such as syndicated conservation easements.

Check out the “Dirty Dozen” tax scams from prior years here.
