Author:  Jeff Baker, Director, Policy Liaison and Implementation, Federal Student Aid

Subject: IRS Warning of a "Federal Student Tax" Scam

On May 27, 2016 the IRS released a statement warning of a scam involving a bogus “Federal Student Tax”. As provided in their statement, the scam is currently presented as “phone calls from IRS impersonators demanding payment for a non-existent tax, the ‘Federal Student Tax.’”

The IRS’ statement includes further explanation of what the scam includes, how students and taxpayers can protect their information, and how the IRS is responding to the issue. Institutions may want to make their students aware of this scam and the potential harm it may cause. More information on the IRS statement can be found on the irs.gov website, at https://www.irs.gov/uac/newsroom/irs-warns-of-latest-scam-variation-involving-bogus-federal-student-tax.
