Beware of Email Scams

We have received inquiries from some of our clients about suspicious emails from the IRS regarding their Federal Tax Payment.  Please note the IRS DOES NOT communicate payment information through email.

These emails may seem to some as legit, they come from and the physical address they have listed: Internal Revenue Service

Metro Plex 1
8401 Corporate Drive, Suite 300
Landover, MD  20785

IS an actual IRS office.  But these emails are scams.  The email directs recipients to a bogus link for a transaction report that, when clicked, downloads malicious software (malware) that infects the intended victim’s computer. The malware is designed to send back to the scammer personal and financial information already contained on the taxpayer's computer or obtained through capturing keystrokes. The scammer uses this personal and financial information to commit identity theft.

See the email below received from one of our customers:
Your federal Tax transaction (ID: 1585160020943), recently initiated from your bank account was returned by your financial institution.

Rejected Tax Transfer
Tax Transaction ID:    1585160020943
Reason of rejection    See details in the report below
FederalTax Transaction Report    tax_report_1585160020943.doc (Microsoft Word Document)

Internal Revenue Service, Metro Plex 1, 8401 Corporate Drive, Suite 300, Landover, MD 20785
Remember, the IRS DOES NOT communicate payment information through email.
If you should receive this email or anything that you believe it a scam, DO NOT click on any links or open any attachments.  Do not reply, instead forward the email to and then DELETE the email.

We at want to keep you informed and protected against the scams out there.  Let others know, so they are aware that these emails are NOT from the IRS.

Current Truck Tax Regulations scheduled to expire on September 30, 2011

Although passing bills in a timely fashion is not what this current congress is known for, there is another significant piece of legislation that has yet to be voted on. The delay of this legislation being enacted has thrown many people in the trucking industry for a loop.  

The transportation law known as SAFETEA-LU – the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users – expired in 2009, but it allowed the taxes associated with the Highway Trust Fund to be collected for an additional two years. When SAFETEA-LU became law in 2005, lawmakers built in what they believed to be enough time to get the next multi-year transportation authorization bill in place.

Those two years have gone by too rapidly and without a new Highway Bill to replace it. House and Senate committees are now drafting preliminary versions of the legislation and continue to debate its details.

Under normal circumstances, tax provisions related to the Highway Trust Fund would be extended as part of the authorization. Unfortunately, no one can accurately predict what will happen in the future, especially with the extreme volatility between parties these days. One thing that is predictable, however, is that will keep updating their website and blog with the latest news affecting the Trucking Industry.  Once there is more information available about the HVUT filing process, we will let you know.
