EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) - Tax season is back and so are the scams.
The Eufaula Police Department has issued a warning to be hyper-aware of IRS scams that could be heading your way soon.
The department says it has already had a few reports of scams during this week's brief government shutdown.
Here are a few reminders to keep yourself protected:
- The IRS never initiates contact by phone, email, or text.
- The IRS will never call and demand payment immediately.
- The IRS does not obtain warrants to make an arrest for failure to pay.
