Tax Fraudsters Swamp Net with Bogus Emails

Some even look like official e-correspondence

The deadline for filing taxes may have expired, but cybercriminals impersonating the IRS in email scams — crafted to steal your tax refund — are just getting warmed up.

An estimated 95 percent of the email moving across the Internet in the past three months — and purporting to come from IRS.gov — was fraudulent, according to results of an email traffic survey supplied to USA Today by messaging security firm Agari.

“Like the sun rises in east and sets in the west, every year, come April, phishers who specialize in tax fraud come out to try to get you,” Agari CEO Patrick Peterson said.

How Scams Happen

Cybercriminals are well-versed in local, state and federal tax rules throughout the U.S. and in other nations.
• They’ll use bogus forms to trick a victim into divulging log-on credentials for tax authority and bank accounts. Or they’ll entice the victim into clicking a malicious attachment or Web link that turns control over to the attacker.

IRS Halts Audits of Certain Issues Relating to Upcoming Capitalization Regs

(Parker's Federal Tax Bulletin: April 15, 2013)

For audits of tax years beginning before 2012, the IRS has directed auditors to discontinue the current audit activity and not begin any new audit activity with respect to certain capitalization issues that will be dealt with in upcoming regulations. LB&I Directive 04-0313-001 (3/22/13).

On December 27, 2011, the IRS issued temporary regulations that provide some bright-line tests for applying the capitalization standards in Code Sec. 162(a) and Code Sec. 263(a). The temporary regulations also amend the general asset account regulations and provide guidance regarding the accounting for, and dispositions of, property subject to Code Sec. 168. The temporary regulations affect all taxpayers that acquire, produce, or improve tangible property, and apply to tax years (or costs incurred in tax years, as appropriate) beginning on or after January 1, 2014. For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2012, and before the applicability dates provided in forthcoming final regulations, taxpayers may choose to apply the temporary regulations.
