Be Weary of IRS Telephone Scam

Internal Revenue Service has issued a warning to all taxpayers.  Information on the scam can be found at

There is a telephone scam currently where thieves are pretending to be IRS agents.  Like any other scam, they are trying to separate you from your hard earned money.

Don’t fall for the scam.  The thieves will tell you that you owe money and they’ll tell you that it must be paid immediately.

Components of the scam include:

  • Thief using fake names and IRS badge number
  • Telling you the last four digits of your Social Security Number
  • Thief sending you emails from IRS
  • Threats of jail time

With any scam, do not believe it.  Your best course of action is to refrain from sharing any of your personal information.  Get off the phone with them.  Call the IRS directly at 1-800-829-1040 and talk with an established IRS employee.

If you get emails from IRS, you should ignore these as well.  IRS will not communicate with you through email.  Typically the first contact you get from IRS will be a letter you receive in the mail.

You can also report this person to Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1-800-366-4484.

  • Owning a small business… to me, it’s worth millions! Bringing Damon on for accounting and tax purposes… just a reasonable monthly fee! Keeping our business legal and my business partner sane… PRICELESS!
