Be wary of tax scams ahead of April 15 filing deadline

Posted on March 13, 2015 6:06 am by Kim Swindell Wood

Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance warns Tennesseeans about scammers and phony tax preparers ahead of the April 15 Tax Day deadline. Unfortunately, when a fraudulent tax return is discovered, it’s the taxpayer, not the return preparer, who pays any additional taxes and interest and who may be subject to penalties. The best protection for taxpayers is a simple one – do your homework.

•Be alert to phone scams

•Check out tax preparers

•Avoid preparers who base their fees on a percentage of the amount of the refund.

•Never sign a blank form.  Make sure the return is accurate before you sign it.
