Video Tips: Receiving A Phone Call from the IRS? Beware of Scammers!

There have been instances where scammers have posed as IRS representatives in order to extract money from unsuspecting victims. Here are a few tips on how to protect yourself from these scammers. First, be aware of the different methods that the IRS uses to contact taxpayers. If you receive a phone call or email from someone claiming to be from the IRS, do not reply or give out any personal information. Second, remember that the IRS will never threaten you with arrest or demand immediate payment. Finally, if you are unsure about whether or not a contact is legitimate, you can always call the IRS directly to confirm or ask for assistance from a professional office.
