IRS Tax Scam Warning | February 2016

NW3C is taking this opportunity to pass along critical information related to ongoing efforts to prevent losses to U.S. taxpayers at the hands of IRS impersonators.

According to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), the Office "continues to receive reports of thousands of contacts every month in which individuals fraudulently claiming to be IRS officials make unsolicited calls and 'robocalls' to taxpayers and demanding that they send them cash."

To combat this widespread problem, TIGTA has expanded its outreach efforts to include video public service announcements in English and Spanish. As part of its efforts TIGTA is "working with its partners in the public and private sector to help get the word out, both through traditional law enforcement channels and through direct outreach to associations, nongovernmental organizations, and the media."

TIGTA officials note that they have "received reports of roughly 896,000 contacts since October 2013 and has become aware of over 5,000 victims who have collectively paid over $26.5 million as a result of the scam."

If you get a call from someone claiming to be with the IRS asking for a payment, here's what to do:

  • If you owe Federal taxes, or think you might owe taxes, hang up and call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS workers can help you with your payment questions.
  • If you do not owe taxes, fill out the "IRS Impersonation scam" form on TIGTA's website,, or call TIGTA at 800-366-4484.
  • You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at Add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments in your complaint.

TIGTA encourages taxpayers to be alert to phone and e-mail scams that use the IRS name. The IRS will never request personal or financial information by e-mail, text, or any social media. You should forward scam e-mails to Do not open any attachments or click on any links in those e-mails.

Taxpayers should be aware that there are other unrelated scams (such as a lottery sweepstakes winner) and solicitations (such as debt relief) that fraudulently claim to be from the IRS.

"We also honor the heroism of all first responders including fire fighters, law enforcement and emergency medical services, and our citizens who responded selflessly in the face of terror. "

David Paulison, FEMA Director (From September 2006 Address)

The Nahant Police Memorial

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind

I never dreamed it would be me
And wish with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for here and all the past
Dear God, let my name be the last.
