[ARCHIVED] IRS Phone Call Scam

The caller will ask the resident to make payment to the Internal Revenue Service for a past due amount. The demand for payment comes with a threat of legal action, and the caller will state that law enforcement will show up on your doorstep unless payment is made.

If you get a call from someone claiming to be with the IRS asking for a payment, do not provide any personal or identifying information to the caller. If you owe Federal taxes, or think you might owe taxes, hang up and call the IRS at 800-829-1040.

Refer to Internal Revenue Service website link below for further information.
