Watch For Tax Refund Scams This Tax Season

Bismarck – When you go to file your taxes this year, watch out for these scams

One of the big scams includes scammers posing as I-R-S agents saying their refund was deposited in error.

Another involves fake e-mails saying you owe thousands in back taxes, but must repay those taxes in prepaid gift cards.

And the latest has scammers contacting people to say they were sent a refund that was too large and have to return a portion of it.

The North Dakota Attorney Generals Office tells us it’s an easy one to fall for.

“You’re already thinking you’re getting some refund, and you can probably live with a little smaller refund and if there was some sort of mistake and you’re probably glad to keep what you have and send them some money, but you’re sending them money you owe them”. Said Parrell Grossman, Director of North Dakota Attorney Generals Office Consumer Affairs Division.

He adds if anything seems suspicious, contact the Attorney Generals Office as soon as possible.
