Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax.

Tax authorities do not call and leave these messages. Sounds like a scam. Either do nothing or report this to the police and the tax authorities.

If you do get a notice in writing, there are fed and state ways to report this as identity theft. It's become so common that IRS has a special firm just to report it. You just don't need it yet.
