Fake QuickBooks tax return email

So I received the following email today. The title of it was SERVICE NOTICE: Your Tax Return was Rejected. It was from the email address It also was sent to 3 other people with similar email addresses to mine. However the links in it were all going to a website that wasn't QuickBooks and it was most likely a phishing link. Here is what this email said.....

RE: QuickBooks Tracking Number: 65469555

Your tax return IRS-941-FILING for EIN *****2621 has been Rejected by the IRS agency. For your reference, the Agency Acknowledgement Number for this filing, if one is provided by the agency, is: 6845817327P2012-10-03.

You can also see this Rejected e-filing in your E-filing History.

Thank you for using Intuit QuickBooks Payroll to process your payroll tax forms.

  1. Thanks--- we got the same email at our small business. This must be fairly new, but also pretty easy to spot as fake, as there qwere some typos in the email.
