IRS Methods of Contact

The IRS communicates with taxpayers in several different ways. In order to avoid becoming a victim of a scam, take the time to review how they can contact you.

The IRS does NOT normally contact taxpayers by email, and they do not engage with taxpayers via social media or text.

When reaching a taxpayer, the IRS typically sends letters via the U.S. Postal Service before anything else. Watch out for fraudulent mail claiming the IRS has already contacted you.

The IRS frequently makes visits to personal homes to discuss tax delinquencies, but they will never request payment to anywhere other than the U.S. Treasury. Always ask IRS representatives to present two forms of ID; this will include a pocket commission and a personal identity verification credential.
