If you are a recipient of Social Security benefits, you need to be on the lookout for your 10-99s for tax season.
Jack Myers with Social Security in Springfield says those are mailed out each year and they are vitally important when filing your taxes.
With tax season here, Myers says the scam calls are going to increase and get more intense. He says this is something everyone should be aware of as your awareness surrounding tax season heightens.
Myers indicates any time Social Security will try to reach you, it is more often than not going to be correspondence through the mail and not a phone call, especially an 800-number phone call.
