Over the past few weeks, many citizens have received stimulus checks from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). These payments provide critical relief for many Americans, as the coronavirus pandemic has caused significant economic disruption and put many out of work. In these uncertain times, the IRS is urging taxpayers to be cautious and keep an eye out for a potential rise in phishing scams. Benefits.gov encourages citizens to stay smart, and read our new article, “Watch for Coronavirus Related Scams”.
On Benefits.gov, you can find additional coronavirus resources, including our article on “Finding the Right Help During the Coronavirus” Outbreak”, our article “Coronavirus Resources for Unemployment and Small Businesses”, and our Coronavirus FAQ within our Help Center.
