Supposed letter from the Internal Revenue Service may be a fraud

MIDDLEPORT – A Johnson Creek Road couple told Niagara County sheriff’s deputies that they received a letter from the Internal Revenue Service asking for more information on their tax returns, but they told deputies they haven’t even filed a return yet.

The letter told them to “file their taxes fully” they needed to contact the IRS and provide information so their application would go through.

The couple did not contact the numbers in the letter, but instead contacted authorities who told them to file a police report and legitimately file their taxes later on.
