Have you ever had a phone call and you wondered if it was for real? Here are some ways to tell if you just had a scam phone call:
1. A call demanding immediate payment. THE IRS WILL NOT CALL ABOUT TAXES YOU OWE WITHOUT FIRST MAILING YOU A BILL.
2. The caller demanding that you pay taxes without giving you a chance to question or appeal the amount.
3. The caller requiring you to use a certain payment for your taxes, like a prepaid debit card.
4. The caller will ask for debit or credit card numbers over the phone.
