2. From Frank Monetti, CPA, MACCTI got a call from a client last night, and he told me someone called him that morning claiming to be from the IRS. They claimed he owed a large amount of money from prior years back to 2008, and had sent him certified letters. They had responses for all his objections, and they actually stayed on the phone with him while he went around town getting money. They told him they would come arrest him and take away his driver’s license if he didn’t comply. I had a hard time figuring out exactly what happened because he was pretty worked up (he doesn’t speak very clearly), but it sounded like he actually wired some money before he decided to call the police.
This client is very well educated, so it just goes to show anyone can fall victim. The moral of the story is, if you hear from the IRS, CALL THE POLICE, THEN YOUR TAX PREPARER OR ATTORNEY. The IRS doesn’t email or call, and will certainly not lock you up on the same day for unpaid income tax. If you can’t reach a professional, find another phone and call the IRS directly to verify any supposed amounts due
See you at the next meeting February 12th at the Captains in 6:30pm.
