Internal Revenue Service phone scams have been consistently on the rise over the past few years. These phone scammers are calling innocent people and asking for money and/or green dot cards to satisfy fictitious outstanding debts. The number one rule to avoid being a victim of phone scams is to know that the Internal Revenue Service or any state tax department will never call you on the phone. Contact with these agencies will occur by mail only. If you are unsure, before agreeing to their demands, call us and we will confirm the validity of the call.
