Few phone calls warrant as much seriousness among taxpayers as a call from the IRS—which makes the recent rise in fraudulent calls and e-mails from contacts claiming to be the IRS especially worrisome. Victims have already lost more than $1 million to the scam.

Most important to note is that the IRS will always contact you via US mail if you owe taxes or are owed a refund, and it will never ask you for your personal or financial information over the phone. We give you more signs to look for in a fraudulent call or e-mail as well as information on who you should contact if you believe you may have been targeted.
