Don't Fall Victim to an IRS Impersonator Scam

IRS Impersonator Scams have literally gone viral - via email, phone, and text messages - in which someone pretends to be a representative of the Internal Revenue Service.  You are told you owe back taxes, or that a lawsuit has been filed against you to collect back taxes.

5 words of advice:
Do not fall for it.

All of these communications are scams attempting to get money from you.  Remember:  the IRS does not initiate contact with a taxpayer via telephone, email, or text message.

If you are contacted by an IRS Impersonator Scam, please report it to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration ("TIGTA") on their website form:  IRS Impersonator Scam Reporting.

Be smart.  Don't fall victim to an IRS Impersonator Scam.  Please contact me if you have questions about this topic or tax preparation, tax planning, or tax representation (audit and collection) concerns.
