IRS Alert: Phishing / Tax Scams / Consumer Alert

The IRS recently issued a Consumer Alert warning of scammers using schemes via regular mail, telephone, or emails being sent to individuals, business, payroll and tax professionals to obtain their personal information, including W-2 information of taxpayers.

If you receive an email that appears to be from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or RCUH requesting you to provide a copy of your W-2 and/or your personal information, please ignore and do not reply or respond.

The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request for confidential personal information.  RCUH will not ask you to provide a copy of your W-2 or personal information outside of the Employee Self Service (ESS) system.

See the following IRS Article:  IRS Tax Scams / Consumer Alert.

Please be aware and keep vigilant so you do not fall victim to these scams targeting taxpayers.

Thank you,

RCUH Payroll Staff
