Be aware of tax scams and avoid being a victim:
Don't answer calls from unknown numbers. Let them go to voice mail
Spoofed calls may trick you into answering the phone. Don't answer. If someone called you and threatens you, hang up. It's a scam.
Never offer information to a stranger or a suspected scammer. Scammers exploit fear and distrust of authority.
Don't give any personal information to anyone who calls you.
Never give money to anyone you don't know.
Check with authorities. Call the IRS directly if you receive a scam call. Letting authorities know about an attempted scam will help prevent future schemes.
Call your local police or sheriff if you suspect a scam
