If you get an email with the subject line “Security Awareness for Tax Professionals” from “Your e-Services Team”, do not open it. The email has IRS and e-services logos that link to a phishing site disguised as an e-services registration page. We advise you to block and delete the email without opening it. If you wish, you may report the email to Phishing@irs.gov, but avoid opening the email and be careful not to accidentally click any links in the email itself.
People who click on the link leave themselves vulnerable to theft of sensitive information. If you have already received one of these emails and followed a link, go to the e-services help desk on the IRS site and reset your password. If you use that password for any other account, reset that as well and run an extensive security scan on your computer.
The IRS has released a statement regarding these phishing emails, along with some general advice on how to protect yourself and your clients from email scammers.
