The Christian County TRIAD program along with the AARP are warning citizens of possible tax scams where scammers try to get you to pay them money. The worry is due to the IRS now working with debt collection agencies in an effort to recover longstanding tax debts.
Brian Hile and Rich Peters with the Christian County TRIAD program want to get the word out about the scams. Peters explained how the process will work should you owe the IRS money, and have your account turned over to a debt collector.
Brian Hile with the TRAID Program and also Taylorville Police Chief says people should trust their gut, and if something doesn't seem right, it probably isn't.
Hile and Peters both appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
