The IRS recently reported a tax scam that your tax resolution expert wanted to make sure you know about. The IRS released information that this tax scam has reached every state in the whole country. It involves individuals calling your house and trying to convince you that they are the IRS. They will tell you that you owe money to the IRS. If you don’t pay the money owed immediately, the caller claims that you could potentially have a lien placed on your possessions.
Many people have taken this call seriously without calling their tax resolution expert to see if it is real. The IRS has told everyone that they will never ask for personal information like bank information or credit card numbers on the phone. Also, they will never pressure you to make decisions without a tax resolution expert on your side.
Currently, the tax scam is centered on immigrants. The caller threatens deportation or arrest if the person does not comply with their demands. Your tax resolution expert wants you to know that the IRS will never use these kinds of tactics in their initial contact with anyone. As a general rule, the first contact with the IRS comes through the mail.
If you get a call like this, your tax resolution expert encourages you to report the information to the authorities. Even if you only have limited information, reporting incidents like this can keep a tax scam like this from continuing to occur. The more people that know about these scams, the less chance the tax scam will be able to continue.
If you ever have a question as to whether communication from any tax entity is correct, you can always contact me or your tax resolution experts. They can help you distinguish between a real IRS issue and a scam that could destroy your credit and complicate your life.
