Scams & Fraud: IRS Impersonators

Over the course of 2014 and now into 2015, thousands of taxpayers are being contacted through voice recordings and by individuals identifying themselves as the IRS or an IRS agent.  J. Russell George, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) claims, "This is the largest scam of its kind that we have ever seen." 

Please know that if you are contacted by the IRS it will be through a written notice.  The IRS does not contact taxpayers by phone or email as normal protocol.  If you have received one of these scam phone calls or emails, or want to find out more information on this scam please see the links below:
