IRS Telephone Scam

The Revenue Service has issued a warning regarding calls received from people claiming that they work for the IRS. The caller will inform taxpayers that they owe taxes that must be paid up fast threatening loss of driver’s license, arrest or deportation if they do not comply. DO NOT give them information. The IRS will NEVER make an unsolicited call to a taxpayer but will ALWAYS contact them by mail first. If you receive such a call, tell the Treasury Inspectors at 800-366-4484. You should also tell the Federal Trade Commission by filing a consumer complaint at www.ftc.gov and noting “IRS Telephone Scam”.
