Top Twelve Tax Scams Revised

We recently revised FTB 987, Top Twelve Tax Scams. This brochure helps you identify and avoid the twelve most common tax scams affecting California taxpayers. Go to and search for 987.

Promoters of fraudulent tax scams attempt to cheat our tax system and contribute to California’s $10 billion estimated tax gap, the difference between what taxpayers owe and what they pay voluntarily.

We continue efforts to counter fraudulent activity through audit enforcement with the Internal Revenue Service partnership, and public education.
