INFORMATION FOR TAXPAYERS REGARDING TAX SCAMS
An aggressive and sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers has been making the rounds throughout the country. Callers CLAIM to be employees of the IRS, but are NOT. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling.
The IRS or State Taxation Agency will:
NEVER Call to demand immediate payment method
NEVER Threaten to have you arrested
NEVER Ask for credit card numbers over the phone
