IRS Warns of New Email Phishing Scheme

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Issue Number:    IR-2014-39


IRS Warns of New Email Phishing Scheme Falsely Claiming to be from the Taxpayer Advocate Service

WASHINGTON —The Internal Revenue Service today warned consumers to be on the lookout for a new email phishing scam. The emails appear to be from the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service and include a bogus case number.

The fake emails may include the following message: “Your reported 2013 income is flagged for review due to a document processing error. Your case has been forwarded to the Taxpayer Advocate Service for resolution assistance. To avoid delays processing your 2013 filing contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service for resolution assistance.”

Recipients are directed to click on links that supposedly provide information about the “advocate” assigned to their case or that let them “review reported income.” The links lead to web pages that solicit personal information.

Taxpayers who get these messages should not respond to the email or click on the links. Instead, they should forward the scam emails to the IRS at phishing@irs.gov. For more information, visit the IRS’s Report Phishing web page.

The Taxpayer Advocate Service is a legitimate IRS organization that helps taxpayers resolve federal tax issues that have not been resolved through the normal IRS channels. The IRS, including TAS, does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, texting or any social media.

For more on scams to guard against see the “Dirty Dozen” list on IRS.gov.

Paperless Direct Deposit – Update

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

THINK GREEN!

Now is the time to switch from a “paper” direct deposit stub to an “electronic” one!

Recent enhancements have been made to the online pay stub. The online version can be used for employment verifications, can be accessed and printed by you at any time, provides an extra level of confidentiality and offers more information to you at a glance. It is a safe and secure method of delivery and also reduces costs for the College.

To enroll, follow the instructions below. Once enrolled, you will receive an e-mail message on each payday notifying you that a deposit has been made to your account(s). The e-mail will include a link to log on to BannerWeb to access your pay stub.

  • Log on to BannerWeb http://go.middlebury.edu/bw
  • Select the Employee tab
  • Click on Pay Information
  • Click on Direct Deposit Allocation
  • Click in the box after the text “Consent to enroll in paperless direct deposit:”Click the Submit button; a message will appear at the top of the page “Your change was saved successfully.”

For those employees still receiving a paycheck, you may sign up for direct deposit at any time – direct deposit is free, convenient and secure. Click on the following link to access the direct deposit form: http://www.middlebury.edu/media/view/254212/original/DIRDEP_FINAL1pdf.pdf

Please e-mail payroll@middlebury.edu if you have additional questions.
