IRS Using Social Media To Catch Tax Cheats

The deadline is Today and the IRS is out in full force. With the advent of new technology, they have now began to use different ways to catch on to people who fudge the numbers a little here and there. You guessed it, social media.

The IRS is now trolling through people’s facebook pages as well as other social media in order to see if they can catch on to anyone who might be trying to pull a fast one. They look for people bragging or mentioning how they pulled one over on Uncle Sam. Now I’m sure none of our clients do anything like this, but it might just be a safe idea to leave any mention of the IRS off of your facebook page.

I mean, no-one wants to get that letter in the mail about an audit or anything. So, here’s a peice of advice. First, pay your taxes. Second, don’t talk about them on any social media. For more information, watch the video below.
