KHON, our Honolulu affiliate, has an Action Line Consumer Alert for this tax season. In recent years scammer have shifted their focus from tricking individuals into sharing their personal details to attempting to trick companies or tax preparers into sharing the details of their employees or clients.

January is a busy month for companies as they prepare year end tax reports and documents for submission to the IRS. Be on your guard against emails pretending to be the CEO or someone from the corporate office requesting an electronic copy of all the employees’ W-2s.
