IRS Scammer Warning (01/01/24)

The IRS will never :

  • Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, the IRS will first mail a bill to any taxpayer who owes taxes.
  • Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have the taxpayer arrested for not paying.
  • Demand that taxes be paid without giving taxpayers the opportunity to question or appeal the amount owed.
  • Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
  • Call about an unexpected refund.

Filing deadline for certain Beneficial Ownership Information Reports extended.  FinCEN Final Rule RIN 1506-AB62 (01/31/2024):

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) of the U.S. Treasury Department today released for publication in the Federal Register final regulations [PDF 276 KB] extending the filing deadline for initial beneficial ownership information (BOI) reports under regulations becoming effective January 1, 2024, that require certain corporations, limited liability companies, and other similar entities created in or registered to do business in the United States to report beneficial ownership information to FinCEN (i.e., information on the persons who ultimately own or control the company).

Under the current regulations, entities created or registered on or after the January 1, 2024 effective date must file initial BOI reports with FinCEN within 30 days of notice of their creation or registration.

  • Today's final regulations extend that filing deadline from 30 days to 90 days for entities created or registered on or after January 1, 2024, and before January 1, 2025, to give those entities additional time to understand the new reporting obligation and collect the necessary information to complete the filing.
  • Entities created or registered on or after January 1, 2025, will continue to have 30 days to file their BOI reports with FinCEN, as generally required under the current regulations.
