If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, here’s what you should do:
If you don’t owe taxes, or have no reason to think that you do:
1.) Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately.
2.) Contact TIGTA to report the call. Use their “IRS Impersonation
Scam Reporting” web page. You can also call 800-366-4484.
3.) Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the “FTC Complaint Assistant” on FTC.gov.
Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" in the notes.
If you know you owe, or think you may owe tax:
Call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS workers can help you.
