Don’t let tax scammers make April the cruelest month

  • Call taxpayers to tell them they’ve got a large refund coming but must provide some personal information to confirm it
  • Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement to have the taxpayer arrested for failure to pay
  • Demand that taxes be paid without providing an opportunity to question or appeal the amount owed
  • Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone
