Perhaps the most frequent complaint, outside of taxes being too high, are the
calls received from the IRS on collection matters and pending litigation.
Many taxpayers have encountered individuals impersonating IRS officials – in
person, over the telephone and via email. Don’t get scammed. We want you to
understand how and when the IRS contacts taxpayers and help you determine
whether a contact you may have received is truly from an IRS employee. The IRS
initiates most contacts through regular mail delivered by the United States Postal
Service. However, there are special circumstances in which the IRS will call or come
to a home or business, such as when a taxpayer has an overdue tax bill, to secure
a delinquent tax return or a delinquent employment tax payment, or to tour a
business as part of an audit or during criminal investigations. Even then, taxpayers
will generally first receive several letters (called “notices”) from the IRS in the mail.
IRS Alerts Taxpayers with Limited English Proficiency of Ongoing Phone Scams;
Urges Caution Before Paying Unexpected Tax Bills | IRS 04/17/2017
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today warned taxpayers with limited
English proficiency of phone scams and email phishing schemes that continue to
occur across the country. Con artists often approach victims in their native
language, threaten them with deportation, police arrest and license revocation,
among other things. “These scammers continue to adapt and evolve, and the IRS
continues to receive reports of these schemes using multiple languages trying to
find victims across the country,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said. “Don’t be
fooled. Regardless of the language being used, the IRS won’t be calling out of the
blue to verify your personal tax information or threaten you to make an immediate
tax payment using a specific method of payment, such as on a pre-paid debit card,"
