IRS Sends Warning Of Scam

The IRS says someone might call you trying to scam you out of $40. The people calling promise to speed up the payment of the advance child tax credit checks, the catch is the taxpayer must agree to a credit card charge of about $40. In reality, the IRS says no person or organization can "speed up" the payment of tax benefits.

Those who qualify for the checks will receive them starting next month.

For more information, call the IRS Tax Fraud Hotline at 1-800-829-0433.
