New Year New Scams

As always the tax scammers are working full-time this tax season. Never pay anything via phone as the IRS or Social Security Administration will never demand payment via phone and does not accept payment in gift cards, crytocurency, or prepaid debit cards. These are scams so please do not do this.http://ow.ly/YOb850HOQWw

Advanced Child Payment Letters and if they are wrong.

When you take your taxes to your tax return preparer, make sure to take the Form 6419 that outlines how much you received if you got the advanced child tax credit. It appears that there were some that may be incorrect. Double check to make sure it matches to what you actually received. http://ow.ly/Z5gm50HMFFF
