Local police officers are warning of yet another IRS scam. Bend police report that several citizens have received threatening phone calls demanding payment or face the possibility of going to jail or incurring more fines.
These callers are NOT from the IRS. The IRS will never call and threaten to take you to jail or impose additional financial penalties for not making an immediate payment over the telephone. If you owe money to the IRS they will notify you in writing first and if they should call, they will not demand payment a certain way (such as a prepaid debit card).
If you are contacted by someone claiming to represent the IRS and demanding immediate payment, hang up the phone. Do not give out any personal information to the caller. If you believe that you may owe money to the IRS you can contact them directly at 800-829-1040 and they can assist you.
These callers do their best to look legitimate and can be very convincing, don’t be fooled. Please call the office at 541.388.7888 if you have any questions. Read more tips from the IRS here.
