Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax
adviser with over 20 years of experience.
The IRS does not send e-mails. They will request an update of your address but that is performed by regular mail not e-mail.
In fact the IRS states
The IRS doesn't initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal
or financial information. This includes requests for PIN numbers, passwords or similar access information for credit cards
, banks or other financial accounts.
The steps the IRS advises to take follows:
Don't open any attachments. They can contain malicious code that may infect your computer or mobile phone.
Don't click on any links. Visit our identity protection page if you clicked on links in a suspicious email or website and entered confidential information.
Forward the email as-is to us
at***@******.***. Don't forward scanned images because this removes valuable information.
Delete the original email.
