Residents in Isabella County have been receiving phone calls from an individual that states he is with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and he is calling to notify them that they owe back taxes and they must send in money right away or they will be arrested.

Two Mt. Pleasant Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) have notified the Sheriff’s Department that numerous clients of theirs had called them and notified them that they had received phone calls from the IRS for being behind on back taxes.

Please do not fall for that scam. The IRS will not call you about back taxes or any other matter. If they need to contact you, they will send you a letter through the U.S. Postal Service.

If you receive a similar call, immediately hang up.
