IRS Warns of Surge in Summertime Scams

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued a new warning for taxpayers about this year's unprecedented increase in attempted tax fraud. This summer has seen an increase in "robo-calls," where scammers leave threatening voicemail messages. When taxpayers call back, they are threatened with arrest, deportation, or revocation of their driver's license for non-payment.

In another twist, scammers impersonating IRS agents are demanding payment through iTunes and other gift cards, which is a clear indication of a scam. The IRS will never require a specific payment method for your taxes, and they will not ask for payment information over the phone.
