IRS Warning: The IRS reminds individuals who owe the payment that it should be made only with their tax return or in response to a letter from the IRS. The payment should never be made directly to an individual or return preparer. Most people don’t owe the payment at all because they have health coverage or qualify for a coverage exemption. The IRS has received several reports of this kind of unscrupulous activity. In some cases, return preparers have told taxpayers to make the payment directly to them, even though the taxpayer had Medicaid or other health coverage and doesn’t need to make the shared responsibility payment at all. In some parts of the country, unscrupulous return preparers are targeting taxpayers with limited English proficiency and, in particular, those who primarily speak Spanish. These preparers are asking for direct payment to them, but their reasons vary. Methods include: • telling individuals that they must make an individual shared responsibility payment directly to the preparer because of their immigration status, • promising to lower the payment amount if the client pays it directly to the preparer, or • demanding money from individuals who are exempt from the individual shared responsibility payment.
