The IRS Will Not Call or Email You about Paying Taxes
Many people are getting calls and emails from the “IRS.”
But not really.
The IRS will not call you about back taxes and pressure you into sending money right then and there.
The IRS will not email you, either. And if it does, the address will end in “.gov.”
The Internal Revenue Service always begins contact with a letter.
Never, ever, ever, respond to an email from the government, a bank, a credit union, or anyone else that asks you to provide sensitive or personal information, such as social security numbers or bank account numbers.
Don't click on any site embedded in these emails, either. They often seem legitimate, but are not.
