Consumer Alerts! Be aware of scams and how to file a complaint.

IRS-Impersonation Telephone Scam
The IRS reports that an aggressive and sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, has been making the rounds throughout the country. Callers claim to be employees of the IRS, but are not.Note that the IRS will never:

  1. Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill;
  2. Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe;
  3. Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card;
  4. Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone; or
  5. Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

‪Please note that the IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media channels. ‪If you get an unsolicited email that appears to be from the IRS, please report it by sending it to phishing@irs.gov. ‪If you find a suspicious website that claims to be the IRS, please send the site’s URL by email to phishing@irs.gov, using the subject line: suspicious website.

For more information on phishing scams, please see Suspicious e-Mails and Identity Theft.
