Here are a few warning signs that a notice "from the IRS" is fake:
- Appears to be issued from an Austin, Texas, address.
- -Says the issue is related to the Affordable Care Act and requests information regarding 2014 coverage.
- Lists the letter number in the payment voucher as 105C.
- Requests checks made out to I.R.S. and sent to the “Austin Processing Center” at a post office box.
This IRS says the type of notice scammers are using is usually several pages long, so another thing to remember if you receive this type of letter in the mail.
