Several of our valued clients have received recent calls from someone “claiming” to be the IRS. Please DO NOT fall for this scam. It is very rare for the IRS to contact a taxpayer by phone. In most cases, this happens via US mail. If perhaps, the IRS legitimately reached out to you by phone, they DO NOT ask for specific payment, nor do they demand you pay taxes without the opportunity to question or appeal. Finally, the IRS will NEVER threaten to bring in local police or other law enforcement agencies as this scam portrays.
Bottom line, even if you are not a customer of Rapid Tax, if you have any questions about being contacted by the IRS, please give one of our tax professionals a call and we will be glad to help in any way possible!!
