And we have gotten a tax alert from the tax scam at the IRS. Apparently tax season is a prime time for phone scams. So if you hear the phone ring and you pick it up, and they say, “This is the Internal Revenue Service,” well, you can either hang up. I probably wouldn’t do that immediately. But I would get name badge number and phone number, and then I would call the local or the regular 800 number and find out if this person is. If you didn’t reach anybody, I would not return or answer any of the questions of that revenue officer unless you can get a local number to reach their supervisor. If you need help, call me at 615-367-0819.
