The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued a warning on May 27, 2016 about a new tax scam in which callers impersonating IRS employees, tax preparers, or even state revenue agents are demanding payment for a so-called “Federal Student Tax” (which does not exist).  In these bogus phone calls, victims are threatened that they will be reported to the police if they do not wire money immediately to the scammer.  The IRS encourages taxpayers to remain vigilant against these scams.  To learn more about this and other common attempts at tax scamming, click here.
