Protect your personal information! The IRS does not initiate taxpayer communications through email.
If you receive a suspicious email from the IRS forward it immediately to email@example.com so they can investigate the source of the email. Also, contact your CPA if you have any questions on what you should do.
Here's a great link to the official email policy of the IRS, including examples of phishing emails and what you should do if you ever receive a suspicious email.
