Is it really the IRS calling?
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
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

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.
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

make unsolicited calls claiming to be IRS officials, and they can use different languages besides English. They tell their
victims they owe the IRS money and must pay it promptly through a preloaded debit card, gift card or wire transfer. They may

refuses to cooperate, the caller becomes hostile and insulting and may threaten arrest, deportation or revocation of a driver’s
or professional license.
Alternately, scammers can politely
begin asking taxpayers to verify their identity over the phone. They may say they have their tax return, and they just need
to verify a few details to process the return. They may also tell their victims they have a refund due to trick them into
sharing private information such as Social Security numbers or personal financial information, such as bank or credit cards
