Denver -- Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman is once again warning Coloradans to avoid falling victim to IRS tax scams. While tax scammers operate year round, their efforts intensify as April 15th approaches. These attempts to swindle often begin with callers claiming to be federal Internal Revenue Service agents seeking immediate payment of taxes. The phony agents use intimidation tactics such as threats of arrest, liens on property, deportation, or driver’s license revocation in to scare consumers into making payments or disclosing personal information.
