Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with this question.
This is a SCAM. The IRS would not make initial calls to request money.
The IRS would send notices explaining why you owed additional funds. I am sorry that you are receiving the calls.
Give me a minute and I will find where you can report these calls.
You receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS but you suspect they are not an IRS employee ...
Anytime that the IRS contacts you by phone the revenue officer or agent must provide you with their badge number.
