Over the past several months, The Colony Group has noted an increase in the number of people who have received fraudulent calls from individuals purporting to be Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents. The IRS continues to warn taxpayers against these aggressive phone scams and other tax-related scams. As we approach the 2015 tax filing season, we want to share these warnings with you and remind you that the IRS follows very specific procedures when communicating with taxpayers. If you ever suspect fraudulent activity, you should always feel free to contact your Colony Group financial counselor right away.
