Tax Scams to Avoid Monday, March 8, 2021
As April 15th approaches, we’re reminded of the saying ‘The tax man cometh.’  But this year there’s something else to worry about because the con man, he cometh as well. This tax season we need to watch out for a truckload of tax-related scams. Some new, some old, but all still dangerous. Today Kingdom Advisors president Rob West has what you need to know Tax refund fraud. A crook gets a hold of your Social Security number and files a false tax return to get a refund.  The W-2 email phishing scam. Crooks use a fake email to trick you into giving them your financial information. Ghost tax preparers. Fake tax preparers take your money and falsify your return. In today’s show we also answer your questions: I need a will but I’m afraid I’m going to hurt my sons’ feelings. Should I tell my children my plans? We have an old house that needs some updates. A contractor gave us an estimate. But I think we have a mold problem in the bathroom. Will our homeowners insurance cover the cost of the updatea? I was excited to hear that you have an app. What’s the best way to get the most out of the MoneWise app? My husband and I are 31 and have saved up a down payment on a home. Should we wait and save more before we buy, or is it OK to buy now?
