Employers can protect themselves and their employees by:
- Educating employees on email best practices
- Never sharing PII over the phone or via email
- Reporting suspicious behavior
The IRS has asked employers who receive�phishing emails to forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Employers must remember that as technology evolves, so do fraudsters. The best defense against fraud during tax season is to be wary of anyone asking for sensitive information and to report any suspicious behavior.
