On May 27, 2016, the Internal Revenue Service issued a warning to taxpayers about bogus phone calls from IRS impersonators demanding payment for a non-existent tax, the "Federal Student Tax." 

If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money and you don't owe taxes, here's what you should do: 

  • Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately.
  • Contact TIGTA (Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration) to report the call. Use their IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting web page or call 800-366-4484.
  • Report to the Federal Trade Commission by visiting and clicking on "File a Consumer Complaint." Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" in the notes. 
  • If you think you might owe taxes, call the IRS directly at 1-800-829-1040.
