IRS: Filing the IRS E-Postcard (990-N)

**Phishing scheme**:
We have recently learned that there is a 990-N e-Postcard phishing scheme out there, where chapters are getting emails disguised as if they are coming from Headquarters with a link to file the 990-N e-Postcard.  The link is to a false IRS site, and when they try to file it tells them they either owe money to the IRS or have to pay money to file.
