 LOL I'm sorry but i had to laugh and share this email i got from the IRS today. since when the deadline to file your tax's move to January 31st.  Yes i know this is spam but do people actually fall for this stuff, I did not open the link and have no desire to I'm sure its a virus.....

 

 

Good day,

We would like to notify you, that you are encouraged to pay a penalty for the failure to file income tax returns before January 31, 2012.

Please note, that IRS [Section 6038(b)(1)] rates a monetary penalty to the amount of $10,000 for each [Form 5471] that is filed after the deadline of filing the income tax return, or does not contain the complete and accurate data defined in [Section 6038(a)].

You will be exempted from the penalty on condition that the taxpayer shows that the late filing was based on ample grounds.

Get inside our official site to obtain more information.

Sincerely,
Internal Revenue Service United States
Department of the Treasury

It does seem pretty obvious that it's a scam (hell companies have til Jan 31st to get you your W2's), not sure how someone could fall for it =)

Wow. When I get emails like that, I type in the actual site in my url to research it. I was going to say, umm when did the deadline go from April 15 to January 31. A lot of people don't have all their forms by the middle of February.

When we get emails like that, my husband responds and strings them along, playing with them. They actually think he's falling for it, then he lays into them, lol.
