The IRS has a warning for Americans -- watch out for tax scams.
Every year the agency releases a "Dirty Dozen" list of the worst tax scams out there. This year, identity theft and phone scams top the list.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen says even the savviest taxpayers can fall victim if they aren't careful.
"These schemes jump every year at tax time," he said. "Scams can be sophisticated and take many different forms. We urge people to protect themselves and use caution when viewing e-mails, receiving telephone calls or getting advice on tax issues."
