I believe that is a scam.

Do not call that number and if you do - be sure NOT to provide any personal information - and DO not pay any money to scammers.

.

As you describes - that sounds as a scam and you will need to be very accurate when communicate with such callers.

Here is an official IRS information regarding similar situations

The Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration continue to hear from taxpayers who have received unsolicited calls from individuals demanding payment while fraudulently claiming to be from the IRS.Based on the 90,000 complaints that TIGTA has received through its telephone hotline, to date, TIGTA has identified approximately 1,100 victims who have lost an estimated $5 million from these scams."There are clear warning signs about these scams, which continue at high levels throughout the nation - said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

Taxpayers should remember their first contact with the IRS will not be a call from out of the blue, but through official correspondence sent through the mail. A big red flag for these scams are angry, threatening calls from people who say they are from the IRS and urging immediate payment. This is not how we operate. People should hang up immediately and contact TIGTA or the IRS

If you have any concern - you may communicate the IRS directly _800_829_1040_
