IRS Warns of Fake Charity Scams

With all that's going on in the world and with the holidays approaching, be especially wary of people asking for donations.

The IRS has indicated there is a place to check the legitimacy of the charity.

"Those who wish to make donations should use the Tax-Exempt Organization Search (TEOS) tool on to help find or verify qualified, legitimate charities.

With the TEOS, people can:

  • Verify the legitimacy of a charity

  • Check its eligibility to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions

  • Search for information about an organization's tax-exempt status and filings"
