Redwood Falls Tax Scam Warning 11 Apr 14

The Redwood Falls Police Department has issued a warning about a tax-time phone scam that has targeted several residents in the community. An unidentified man calling from an 888 phone number and claiming to be with the IRS has reportedly contacted several people and told them they were under investigation and they needed to send in a payment in order to avoid prosecution. The IRS does not typically ask for payments over the phone, and authorities stress that if you do receive such a call do not provide any personal or bank account information. If you have any questions about your personal tax returns you should contact your local IRS office, and for information on tax-time related scams you can check out the IRS website
