Aggressive and threatening phone calls by criminals impersonating IRS agents remain a major threat to taxpayers, headlining the annual “Dirty Dozen” list of tax scams for the 2016 filing season, the Internal Revenue Service announced last week.
Remember, the IRS will not call and demand immediate payment or for you to call back and enter a code. They will always send a letter.
My 80-year-old mother got several calls last week that demanded she call back and pay money she “owed.” The number was 804-332-5401 and they called several times. When I called them they answered “internal revenue service” sometimes and “federal treasury department” other times.

To report an IRS scam, call 1-800-366-4484.

As a side note, do you know what “antipasto” means? I don’t think I ever thought much about it but had lumped it in with a type of food when in reality it means “before the meal” and is a course of appetizers consisting of an assortment of foods, as olives, anchovies, sliced sausage, peppers, and artichoke hearts. I learn something new every day!
