SCAM: Caller claims to be from IRS

Posted: Updated:

The Hamilton County Sheriff's office is warning of a scam.

Some have received phone calls from people claiming to be with the IRS.

And they demand immediate payment on previous year's owed taxes to avoid legal action or a fine.

According to the IRS, a taxpayer's first contact with the IRS will be through official correspondence sent through the mail, not from an unsolicited phone call.
