Tax Scam

The Internal Revenue Service has issued a warning regarding a telephone tax scam.  The scammers are calling taxpayers and identifying themselves as IRS agents and they are notifying the taxpayer of overdue taxes.  The false agent demands payment immediately over the phone or further legal action will be taken.  The IRS WILL NOT contact taxpayers by telephone regarding past due taxes and demand payment immediately without a proper appeals process.  Please DO NOT give out personal or payment information over the phone to someone claiming to be from the IRS.  Identity theft can be crushing and take years to recover financially.  Please notify the IRS immediately if you believe you have been a possible target of this scam.  You can read more about this tax scam at;-IRS-Identifies-Five-Easy-Ways-to-Spot-Suspicious-Calls.
