Watch Out For Scams
There were many schemes related to the previous round of stimulus payments. Remember the following to avoid becoming a victim:
  • The IRS won’t contact you by phone, email, text message, or social media with information about your stimulus payment, or to ask you for your Social Security number, bank account, or government benefits debit card account number. 
  • You don’t have to pay to get your stimulus money.
  • The IRS won’t tell you to deposit your stimulus check then send them money back because they paid you more than they owed you. 
If you need any further assistance, we are a phone call away. 800-472-4292. 

You can also get assistance after hours by calling 844-796-6955 from (5 PM - 11 PM PST on weekdays, and 9 AM - 5 PM PST on weekends). After hours calls may result in longer hold times due to the increased call volume expected during this time.
