Several residents have reported receiving telephone calls from people claiming to work for the IRS.  The scammers typically claim an unpaid tax liability is due and try to elicit private information or payments from the resident.  The IRS does not initiate any such calls and will not ask for private information via phone or email.  More information about this scam is available by clicking here

Residents should be cautious of any unknown phone calls or emails.  The themes and manners of scams are endless.  Keep in mind legitimate organizations won’t ask for personal information over the phone, such as Social Security, Bank Information, Account Numbers or Passwords.  When in doubt, simply hang up – if you do business with the organization that allegedly called, call them back at a known phone number.
