Some residents of Shelter Island and Suffolk County have reported being contacted by a person who claims to be a representative of the Internal Revenue Service (or other governmental agency.) The caller often claims their role with the IRS is a senior auditor or investigator. Generally, the caller starts off with a polite “suggestion” that the IRS has uncovered some discrepancies with your filings and that you owe the IRS money. If you do not initially cave to their scheme, the callers have a history of amping up the pressure, becoming more accusatory, and in some cases claiming that a warrant has been issued for your arrest and that agents are on their way to arrest you. DO NOT provide these individuals with ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, BANKING INFORMATION, CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS NUMBERS OR SEND THEM MONEY VIA ELECTRONIC WIRE. If you get a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, the IRS recommends the following:  
  • If you know or believe that you owe taxes, contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.
  • If you know that you do not owe taxes and believe that the call was a scam attempt, please call the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1-800-366-4484.
