A client of ours recently received, via facsimile, this document. The letter appears to be on IRS letterhead, signed by an official, asking for banking information and signatures. This is a fraudulent request.
The IRS will never ask for this information through a fax or email. As always, whenever you receive a request from any government authority, please forward the letter to us immediately, so we may review the letter and advise you appropriately on the proper course of action.
