The IRS does not call taxpayers to tell them that there is a legal problem. The message that you received is more than likely a scam call. If you want to check with the IRS to see if there is a problem with your account, you can call them at 1-***-***-****. Be prepared to be on hold for a long time. For more information regarding various scams, refer to the following IRS webpage.
