On March 6th, 2018, a township resident reported receiving a phone call from an alleged “IRS Agent” claiming that money was owed to the IRS. The caller had an accent and was asking for a large amount of money to be paid. THE CALL IS A SCAM!
The IRS Website has valuable information regarding tax scam awareness with the following key points:
“Note that the IRS DOESN’T:
- Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, the IRS will first mail you a bill if you owe any taxes.
- Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
- Demand payment without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
- Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.”
