The IRS came today to warn taxpayers against a new telephone scam.  This scam is targeting students and parents, demanding payments for a “Federal Student Tax” (which does not exist)!

The IRS will NEVER:

  • Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method;
  • Threaten to call in the local police;
  • Verify tax information over the phone;
  • Ask for credit card numbers over the phone.

Do NOT give out any information; hang up the phone immediate.  You can also call TIGTA (Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration) to report the call at (800) 366-4484.
