A Reminder to Watch out for IRS Scams

As the summer continues on so do the fake calls from scammers demanding money for various things such as back taxes you owe. We are getting reports from clients stating they are getting multiple calls per day from scammers demanding money. The threats range from automated calls to a live person telling you there’s a case against you and the police are coming to arrest you. We want to remind everyone to NEVER GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION to any of these unsolicited phone calls from scammers or give them any money.

The IRS just sent out a reminder that they do not do the following actions:

* Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method, such as a prepaid debit card, wire transfer, or gift card.
* Demand taxpayers pay taxes without being able to appeal or question the decision.
* Threaten to have you arrested for not paying.
* Threaten to revoke your drivers license, business license, or immigration status.

Please consult your tax advisor on all the above information.
