Reporting Fraud and Scams:
If you have received phone calls purportedly from an IRS agent saying you owe taxes, contact the Treasury Department:
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.
If you think you've been scammed, read this article, then call the Fraud Hotlines listed below.
