Tax Filing Deadline Looms

Midnight tonight is the
deadline to file your taxes. And with tax season comes tax fraud. Wisconsin
Department of Revenue Secretary Rick Chandler says there are the typical
fraudulent filers, as well as newer phone scams. Chandler says, “if we want to contact you, we’ll
do it in writing. So if you get a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS
or Wisconsin Department of Revenue, that’s a red flag, that’s a scam. Hang up
and don’t give them any information.” Chandler
also says 85% of all taxpayers are now using an E-Filing system. There are
tutorials and other resources on how to file your taxes electronically on the
Department of Revenue website.
