You have probably already deleted the email, but if not, then forward it to the IRS.
"How to report phishing, e-mail scams and bogus IRS Web sites
If you receive an e-mail or find a Web site you think is pretending to be the IRS,
Forward the e-mail or Web site URL to the IRS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can forward the message as received or provide the Internet header of the e-mail. The Internet header has additional information to help us locate the sender.
After you forward the e-mail or header information to us, delete the message."
I had never heard of providing the Internet header; good to know.
