California – Tax Related Phone Scams

Salt Report 3592 – The California BOE has received multiple reports from taxpayers that received phone calls from someone impersonating a local police officer who demanded immediate payment for a tax liability and threatened arrest. The callers spoof police department or BOE telephone numbers on caller ID, creating the appearance that a legitimate party is calling. This is not how the BOE operates, and taxpayers should never give any personal information or make a payment to anybody making such a call.
