The Chapin Police Department wants residents to know fake phone calls from the IRS are going around.

In a Facebook post on Monday, the department stated the caller is impersonating an IRS representative. The caller then says the person has an unpaid tax debt and threatens them with a visit from the Chapin Police Department.

The department also reiterates that the IRS will not call people over the phone to collect debts.
