The Sheriff's Office has received several calls from residents who report they have received phone calls from individuals claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service. The caller tells the victims that their income tax return has been misfiled and they owe more money. The caller then tries to get the victims to submit payment. These calls are fraudulent. Anyone receiving such calls should hang up and not give any information. The Internal Revenue Service does not contact people by phone.
