The latest scam on taxpayers is this: a taxpayer, who probably has a Federal Tax Lien, will receive a phone call from someone who claims to be from the IRS. These scam artists will try and scare the taxpayer into paying money over the phone or face "deputies" being sent to their home for arrest. The IRS does not make calls like these. EVER!!!! IT"S A SCAM.
If you receive a call like this, you can hang up on them without fear of being arrested, or, you can report this scam to the authorities. Either way, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
