I got a call from 202 769 5226 (a DC number) from a woman who said her name was Shirley Carter of the IRS. Her accent was foreign. She furnished me Badge number 1090885.
There was a problem with my returns between 2008 and 2013, she said. (Note: The statute of limitations has run on some of those years.) “Why haven’t I seen anything in the mail?” I asked. You must have misplaced it, she told me.
I asked her to remail the material. She hung up. And hasn’t called back.
A call to that number yields only hold music.
The IRS does not call out of the blue.
