As April 15 approaches, IRS reminds you of phony tax scams

WASHINGTON - With just three weeks until Tax Day, the IRS is reminding Americans of tax scams both on the phone and through email. The IRS reminds you they will never:

1. Call to demand immediate payment
2. Demand you pay without giving you the opportunity to question the amount they say you owe.
3. Require you to use a specific payment method, like a prepaid debit card.
4. Ask you for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
5. Threaten you saying that if you fail to provide immediate payment, police officers will arrest you.

See the full list of tax scams and how to protect yourself here.
