Welcome. Thank you for choosing us to assist you. My name is ***** ***** my goal is to help make your life, a little... less taxing.
Thank you for requesting my assistance. That phone call is likely a scam. The IRS and state taxing agencies do not contact taxpayers by phone to inform them of a tax lien. This is usually done via mail. You can refer to the following IRS webpage for more information relating to the various telephone and other scams relating to the IRS.

To be certain, you can always call the IRS or authorize someone to call on your behalf to find out what is going on with your tax account. 1-***-***-****. If you authorize someone to make the call for you, you will need to complete either a Form 8821 (Tax Information Authorization) or a Form 2848 (Power of Attorney).
Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you regarding this matter.
