What is phishing?

Phishing is a tactic used by scammers to gain your personal information online via email or website. Phishing schemes can operate by posing as friends, organizations, or government agencies and demanding personal information like passwords, credit card numbers, addresses, or Social Security Numbers.

If you ever receive an email claiming to be from the IRS that demands any personally identifiable information (PII), you can confidently ignore it; the IRS never initiates communication with taxpayers by email. If you aren’t sure, call the IRS at (800) 829-1040.
