Is www.irs.gov.confirm44id.us a valid Internal Revenue Website. I have a tax client who received a text on his cell phone telling him he had to verify his identity with the IRS at this website. I believe it is another scam as I don't believe the IRS has cell phone numbers. Would someone be able to verify this for me. My e-mail address is: ***@******.***. We have not e-filed his taxes this season.

Hello

The IRS does not send e-mails. The IRS gets many reports of fake websites like this. Criminals use these sites to lure people into providing personal and financial information that may be used to steal the victim’s money or identity. ‪

That is a deceptive site!

I know rating takes an additional step and I truly appreciate it when you take the extra time!
You have to actively click on a rating (OK or Better) and click submit. Smiley Faces or Stars.
When you actively click on a rating and click submit, that lets Just Answer know you were assisted and credits me for the time.
