This might help

https://www.irs.gov/privacy-disclosure/report-phishing

It is from IRS website and gives some interesting info

This is the key sentences to me

The IRS doesn't initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information. This includes requests for PIN numbers, passwords or similar access information for credit cards, banks or other financial accounts

First off, the IRS wouldn't be sending a K-1 to a taxpayer. A K-1 is the form that is given to a partner in a partnership, or a shareholder in an S-Corporation, that shows the income and other information that they need to include on the tax return they will file with the IRS. It is similar to a W-2 or 1099 that you get with tax information on it. Typically, these entities that you are part owner in send you these documents for tax preparation purposes, either by hard copy, or digitally like this. But you should know whether or not you own an interest in the entity they say they are sending you the K-1 for. If you don't own a piece of anything like the businesses listed in the message, DO NOT OPEN any links or download anything from the email. Chances are it is a scam, especially since these K-1s are supposed to have been sent to everyone way back early in the year so they could get their tax return filed by the 4/15 deadline. Or it could be a mistake and you somehow erroneously got sent a message that was supposed to go to someone else, but that would be even rare to have happen.

If you are unfamiliar with the sender, and not aware of any K-1 you should be getting, I would delete the message outright, and not even respond back to it. Be careful!

...used to work in digital authentiction when i was younger...

In looking at the screenshot...in my opinion

The bottom Url is a trash .com for phishing. If the post url goes to where this shows...who knows where this is when you click it

The top one can be displayed as legit but if you hover over (you'll see where clicking the link posts you to) it can actually take you to another trash .com url for phasing(even though it shows legit) similar to a "click here" take you to the posting url, same thing here...they just make the click here look like a url.

Pall this for personal info, fake logins, steal correct pwd attempts on fake logins, use them w emails on other sites etc

from my research on the LINK I sent and the info from other members 100% positive it is a scam.

Hopefully no one in this forum falls for it and hopefully people see this to be warned
