Kentucky Business Owners Warned of IRS Mimic Website

Attorney General Andy Beshear is warning business owner to be wary of websites that charge for services that are provided for free by the Internal Revenue Service. Beshear said a Kentucky business owner reported a suspicious website, which mimics IRS.gov, but advertises services to help business owners obtain an Employer Identification Number for a $250 to $300 fee. The EIN is provided free through IRS.gov. In addition to the fee to obtain an EIN, lookalike websites collect personal information, including the victim’s Social Security Number.
