Be Savvy – Avoid IRS Scams


Be wary of ANY calls you receive from the IRS. Do not give in to fear tactics, the IRS will never call you to request payment or threaten lawsuits or arrests.

  • Don’t share any of your information –  Call the IRS directly at 1-800-428-1040

  • Never send money, gift cards or any other type of payment!

  • Report these criminals –  You can do so through the FTC’s website at The more reports received, the more likely they can be caught and stopped!

  • Share with your family and friends –  Don’t let those who you know and love get taken advantage of!
