As the tax deadline nears, taxpayers are encouraged to beware of the scams springing up with tax season.

One of the year's most popular scams are bogus e-mails from tax preparation software providers.

According to a Turbotax spokeswoman, Turbotax has seen a marked increase in reports of such fake e-mails, designed to steal financial information or infect your computer with viruses.

Instead of opening the e-mail, go to the tax software company's website and log in...if the company sent you a legitimate alert, you'll likely find it there.
