7.1.19 – Top 7 tax scams: #2 Phone calls

Tax tip

Phone calls from criminals impersonating IRS agents remain an ongoing threat to taxpayers. The IRS has seen a surge of these phone scams in recent years as con artists threaten taxpayers with things like police arrest, deportation and license revocation.

Note that the IRS does not make phone calls but instead sends official notices in the mail.
