Beware of a New Variation on Tax-Related Phone Scams

On Behalf of | Apr 27, 2018 | IRS |

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and its Security Summit partners have released a warning about a new variation on phone scams by which criminals prey on taxpayers. Scammers are now using telephone numbers that mimic IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers to try to trick victims into paying non-existent tax bills. Remember that IRS employees at these centers do not make calls to taxpayers to demand payment; such requests are typically initiated through regular mail delivered by the U.S. Postal Service.

Tax scam season does not end on the April filing date, the IRS warns. For more information on this phone scam variant, click here.
