Attorney General Tong, DRS Commissioner Boughton Warn Consumers of Fraudulent Letters About Unpaid Tax Debt

(Hartford, CT) — Attorney General William Tong and Department of Revenue Services Commissioner Mark D. Boughton today are warning Connecticut consumers of a scam in which they receive a threatening letter about unpaid federal tax debts.

The fraudulent letter claims to be from a “Tax Processing Unit” in a Connecticut county and threatens legal action for unpaid taxes and provides a number to call to avoid enforcement. This is a scam.
