Tax Scams on the Rise

Tax Scams on the Rise

Unfortunately, tax scams are the on the rise.  So you don’t become a victim to these scams, remember these important reminders from the IRS:

1.  The IRS will never call to demand immediate payment, or call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill;

2. The IRS will never demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe;

3.  The IRS will never require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card;

4.  The IRS will never ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone; and

5.  The IRS will never threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
