With the coming of “Tax Season” we are observing a rise in the number of complaint calls pertaining to individuals being scammed by subjects impersonating IRS Agents. Commonly, the victim will receive a call from an individual or individuals claiming to be IRS Agents stating the victim owes back taxes and must make payment immediately or be arrested. The IRS has issued a number of public announcements both on TV and in print media warning the public of this fraud but we continue to see a large number of individuals who have fallen victim.
Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is currently investigating all IRS Impersonation Scams and takes the matter seriously. If you are the victim of an IRS Impersonation Scam please report the complaint to the TIGTA Denver Field Division at (303) 291-6100 or TIGTA’s “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” website linked below:
