Be on guard against fake emails that contain an IRS tax bill related to the Affordable Care Act. Scammers have sent a fraudulent version of CP2000 notices for tax year 2015 to some taxpayers.

The scam involves an email that includes a fake CP2000 as an attachment.

However, the CP2000 is a notice commonly mailed to taxpayers through the United States Postal Service. It is never sent as part of an email.
The issue has been reported to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration for investigation.
