Tax Scam Alert

Posted By: Elizabeth Matthews    Published: Tuesday, 17 Dec 2013

Beware of companies seeking to hire you to prepare income tax returns. Many of these companies engage in a crime called tax preparer fraud. A company is probably engaged in criminal activity if it offers you money for preparing other people's tax returns by yourself. Do not take a chance working for these scam companies - tax preparer fraud is a very serious criminal offense. Criminal arrests and/or convictions can also lead to loss of your legal visa status in the U.S.

OISS will partner with the MSU College of Law Tax Clinic to offer FREE seminars on how to properly prepare your own tax returns in February and March 2014. Please look for an annoucement in late January 2014 regarding this convenient, free service.
