Residents are also advised to be aware of phone calls from those purporting to be from the IRS and threatening that the police will be contacted if they don’t immediately make a payment.  According to the IRS web site,

            “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. “
