There is a new variation of SCAM IRS phone calls and/or emails claiming to come from the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The person is told they owe money to the IRS and that them must make prompt payment through a credit card or some other online payment means.
PLEASE NOTE: Such phone calls and emails are fraudulent. DO NOT COMPLY WITH ANY OF THESE REQUESTS. The IRS does not make unsolicited phone calls or e-mails about tax account matters to taxpayers. All IRS correspondence is via postal mail.
Foreign Nationals should NEVER provide their Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number to anyone via a phone call or email. The support center for the Glacier Tax Prep software provided by Princeton University for international students and scholars will never ask a person to send their Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number via email, and they should not include that information when sending in a request for support via email.
