Social Security Refund Just Another Scam

Taxpayers should not fall victim to a scam offering refunds of the Social Security taxes they've paid during their lifetimes.

How the scheme works is in exchange for filing a claim with the IRS, victims are asked to pay a "paperwork" fee of $100, plus a percentage of any refund received.

Be aware that the law does not allow this type of refund of Social Security taxes. Victims are robbed of the up-front fee. IRS processing centers are aware of this scam and have been stopping the false claims.
