Report tax scams to the Indiana Department of Revenue

INDIANAPOLIS — Many Hoosiers know the drill all too well. They answer the phone to hear a caller claiming money is owed to the Internal Revenue Service – and they need to pay up or else. Further, the caller often insists on unconventional terms of payment – such as the use of gift cards.

Betsy DeNardi, director of the Consumer Protection Division for the Office of the Attorney General, recently shared tips for consumers who might be wondering how to handle such unwelcome intrusions.

If the IRS or the Indiana Department of Revenue has a concern about a resident’s taxes, they’re not going to contact the individual in question by phone, DeNardi said. While some third-party collection agencies do contact individuals through phone calls, they will not threaten consumers with arrest.

If you believe you have been the victim of a tax-related or any other type of scam, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General can help. Go to or call 1-800-382-5516 to make a complaint.
