This is a very common "IRS scam" that usually increases at tax time across the entire country. The Texas Attorney General’s office issued this consumer alert last year detailing information about the scam, as well as tips for those who receive scam calls. All information in this press release is still relevant and we have additional information on our telephone scam webpage here.

 

I highly recommend filing a complaint with our office here and with the Treasury at TIGTA.gov.
