Beware of IRS Tax Scams


With the tax day coming up, scammers posing as the IRS will be active in the Tri-City area. Here are some things you need to know regarding the IRS.

• The agency does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text message, social medial channels.

• The IRS will first send any communication delivered by the United States Postal Service, such as a notification or bill.

• They will never require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card, gift card, Bitcoin or wire transfer.

• They will never threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

• If they ask for any personal information, do not give it to them. Simply hang up.

If you think that you have been contacted by a scam caller contact the IRS or U.S. Treasury Inspector General.
