For those of us in the U.S, we're coming into the final stretch for filing our Federal tax returns, and the procrastinator that I am has just finished filing.  If you think that doing your taxes isn't stressful enough, you should also be wary of IRS phish.  I am interested in whether the next twenty four hours are going to be an especially mad dash for phishers trying to take advantage of stressed out tax filers and duping them into giving up the keys to their kingdoms.  If you do receive suspicious or obvious IRS phish, I'm interested in the details, but certainly report it directly via email (include full headers) to phishing@irs.gov.

Any and all phish can be reported to the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) following their directions at: http://www.antiphishing.org/report_phishing.html
