            “The IRS and its authorized private collection agencies will never:

·       Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, the IRS will first mail a bill to any taxpayer who owes taxes.

·       Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have the taxpayer deported or arrested for not paying.

·       Demand that taxes be paid without giving the taxpayer the opportunity to question or appeal the amount owed.

·       Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. “
