Looks pretty official, right? WRONG! This is a Phishing Scam, and apparently it's Phishing Scam season. Watch out for any Emails that ask for personal information or offer updates on your Tax Return status. The IRS never

If you're not sure about any Email you receive, don't reply and don't click on any links in the Email. Simply delete it.
