Tax Time Means It’s Tax Scam Season
Tax time is right around the corner and Yakima Police continue to warn people of a IRS related scam in which some local residents have become victims. The scammers call or leave urgent messages saying they're from the IRS and that the person they're calling owes money to the IRS for unpaid taxes. In some cases the scam call threatens to get Yakima Police involved.
The U.S. Treasury Department says its' one of the largest and most active scams they have seen.
Police say hang up or ignore messages to call back and never give any of your personal financial information out over the phone.
