Actually you didn’t. There are some internet scams that use e-mails, supposedly from the IRS, in an attempt to get identity information for illegal purposes. These e-mails may tell you about a refund due you, or that something is wrong with your tax account. They may have links that direct you to the real IRS website, and then re-direct you to a bogus website that has been set up. The IRS does not initiate communications with taxpayers through e-mail. Communication from the IRS is initiated through mailed correspondence.
If you receive an e-mail supposedly from the IRS, or directing you to an IRS site, the IRS advises:
Do not reply, Do not open any attachments; they may infect your computer, Forward the e-mail to the IRS at firstname.lastname@example.org After forwarding the message, delete the e-mail.
