Another Tax Scam Is Circulating Through The Area

Another tax scam has been circulating through the area. Every year during the tax season local law enforcement agencies receive reports from residents who have received calls from scammers claiming to be with the IRS demanding payment of face jail! Over the past few days, KVGC has received a number of listener calls reporting this activity. Callers have reported receiving a recorded call claiming it’s their final notice to pay the IRS, or a tax discrepancy has been received, and its urgent to return the call. Other callers have reported receiving a call from someone with the IRS who makes threats about a warrant being issued for the arrest. Law enforcement officials in both Amador and Calaveras Counties say if you receive one of these calls, do not under any circumstances give out any personal information and hang up. If you have any questions you can call the IRS directly at 1-877-382-4357. This year tax day falls on Tuesday, April 17th.
