Taxpayers are still reporting receiving phone calls from callers pretending to be the IRS,
threatening with legal action for unsubstantiated tax issues. A client of ours just received a
recorded message with a similar threat that sounded more legitimate than the calls others have
received, so we wanted to remind you again to be vigilant against these scammers.
We wanted to remind you that the IRS will only call you in very rare instances, and if you truly
had a tax lien that the IRS had elevated to the level that they put forth in these calls, you would
definitely know about if beforehand. Do not panic.
If you receive one of these calls, please just hang up. If you are in doubt about whether it may be
legitimate, ask the caller to send you a notice in writing to the address they have on file. Do not
give them any personal information even if they say they need to verify it. If it is truly the IRS,
they will not balk at sending you a written notice, and they will already have your address.
Call our office if you have any questions or receive a notice in the mail, we can help!
