Department of Revenue Scam
Alabama's top tax official is warning taxpayers about a phone scam involving her office. State Revenue commissioner Julie Magee says someone claiming to be with the Department of Revenue is calling taxpayers and telling them they need to pay an amount due immediately. The calls are coming from a 607 area code, which is for New York State. McGee reminds the public that her office will only communicate with taxpayers through the mail. Anyone who receives one of those calls is asked to report it to her office. The phone is (334)- 242-3102.
