IRS Scam Alert!

Throughout the day numerous residents of East Goshen Township have reported receiving fraudulent phone calls where the caller identifies themselves as a representative of the IRS. The caller then  demands immediate payment of past due taxes or a warrant will be issued for their arrest.  Residents should  be advised that this is a SCAM and are reminded to never wire money, purchase gift cards, or send money to anyone who purports to be from the IRS.  If such calls are received residents are encouraged to report the matter to our police department  by calling 610-692-5100 and to also contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration to report a phone scam.
