Here's information that accountants think they should know.
Matthew Whalen is the Manager of Taxation at Northland CPAs in Rhinelander.
He often gets calls from clients about messages they received from the IRS.
"They [get] a phone call from the IRS that says they're filing a lawsuit against the client.
That is entirely false that's just a scam artist trying to get you to wire money to them.
The IRS and the department of revenue will only send letters," said Whalen.
The IRS and the Wisconsin Department of Revenue only send real paper letter sin the mail.
They will never call you.
