(Lake Havasu City, AZ – March 9, 2015) Whether consumers have filed their taxes or are in the process of doing so, now is the time to protect against potential tax scams. Better Business Bureau (BBB) advises consumers to beware of electronic communications about taxes or refunds that appear to come from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Identity thieves will impersonate the IRS to ‘phish’ for personal and private information. The emails may state there is a problem with a refund or return, and that confirmation of personal or financial information is required to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, once consumers click on a link – leading to a fake website – and verify their personal information, they are at risk.
BBB offers the following tips on how consumers can prevent falling for a tax scam and becoming a victim of identity theft:
1. Be wary of emails, phone calls or text messages that claim to be from the IRS. If the IRS needs to contact you, they will generally do so through mail. Consumers who receive an unsolicited email that appears to be from the IRS or an organization with a similar name, such as the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS), should report it immediately email@example.com. You can also visit the IRS website for the top tax scams for 2015.
3. Do not provide any personal information, click on links or open any attachments if it appears to be a phishing email from the IRS.
4. Start with trust by selecting a trustworthy tax preparer at SearchBBB.org. Ensure the person helping you file your taxes has a Tax Preparer Identification Number (TPIN). Selecting a reputable tax preparer will help protect your personal information.

A pancake breakfast to celebrate the 104th birthday of Robert P. McCulloch, the founder of Lake Havasu City is planned for March 21. Although McCulloch’s birthday is actually in May, he shouldn’t mind celebrating during a cooler time of the year.
The breakfast is from 8-10 a.m. at the Lake Havasu Museum of History, 320 London Bridge Road. The cost is $5. In addition to pancakes, there will be cake, contests, games and prizes. Admission to the museum is free during the breakfast.
In place of the traditional poetry contest, Burma Shave verses should be submitted for consideration and the winners will be selected by people’s choice. Local references in the verses are encouraged. Some examples would beCONFUSED DESERT TRAVELLERS, CAME OVER THE RIDGE, WE REALLY ARE LOST, IT’S THE LONDON BRIDGE. Entries should be sent to the museum by March 18.
There also will be a LHC Trivia Contest, Poker Fundraiser ($5/hand) and, of course, birthday cake. McCulloch’s J2 Gyroplane will be on site for photo opportunities.
Bob’s Birthday Breakfast offers an opportunity not only to enjoy a pancake breakfast, but to also learn more about the amazing man who built Lake Havasu City from 26 square miles of barren desert.
