    Beware!   
    The IRS will never:


    1. Call to demand immediate payment, nor will they call about taxes owed without first having mailed 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.
    5. Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

    If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, here is what you should do:

    • If you know you owe taxes or think you might owe, call your tax professional to verify that payment arrangements have been made, or call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.  The IRS workers can help you with a payment plan.
    • You can file a complaint using the FTC Complaint Assistant at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov; choose "Other" and then "Impostor Scams".  If the complaint involves someone impersonating the IRS, include the words "IRS Telephone Scam" in the notes.

    Also remember that the IRS does not use unsolicited email, text messages, or any social media to discuss your personal tax issues.  Report suspicious online or emailed scams to Phishing@irs.gov.

    If you have any questions or concerns about any communication you received, please do not hesitate to contact this office.   Our toll free number is 800-350-1299.

    Be safe, Be smart!
