Authorities Warn of IRS Scam


The Gosper County Sheriff's Office wants to warn the public about phone calls from people claiming to be with the Internal Revenue Service.

The agency has been investigating the fraud.

Officials say the caller will claim that you owe taxes or haven't filed your tax return and ask for personal information.

The caller then threatens to have you arrested if you do not provide that information.

Officials urge anyone contacted to not give out any information and contact local authorities.

The IRS will never call you if they have questions regarding your tax status. They will either contact you by mail or in person.
