Recognize common scams from IRS impersonators with these RTBAV tips

NRA Refuse To Be A Victim program logo Fairfax, Virginia - Tax season is everyone's favorite time of year, right? Of course it is! With the entire country pouring over their financials, enterprising con artists are working hard to impersonate IRS agents and catch you off guard. Refuse To Be A Victim wants you to be aware of several popular scams:

  • Someone calls or emails saying they're from the IRS and you owe money. They say if you don't pay immediately, a warrant could be issued for your arrest.
  • Sometimes they recite personal information such as the last 4 digits of your Social Security number to sound credible. The number on the caller ID might even look legitimate or imitate the IRS toll-free number or the email address might be similar to actual IRS email addresses
  • Someone promises you a big refund if you let them prepare your taxes. People generally prey on people who do not have a filing requirement, such as low-income individuals or the elderly. They also target non-English speaking individuals. They charge big money for bad advice or worse yet, file the return and have the refund deposited into their account.
