If you know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to believe that you do, report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at 1.800.366.4484 or at https://www.treasury.gov/tigta/. If you have caller ID, give the TIGTA people the scammer's phone number. Fraud Hotlines are listed below:
