The Dare County Sheriff’s Office has been informed of another Scam by mail. On its face, the document appears to be an official document coming from a Dare County entity, which it is not. The letter is missing a lot of the information that an actual notice would have. For example, it only has a phone number and not a mailing address.
In addition, it is titled Distraint Warrant, which is not a term used by the IRS, the North Carolina Comptroller of Public Accounts or County Tax Assessors-Collectors in North Carolina. Other telltale signs are the letter does not identify the tax owed or the tax period. If there is ever any doubt about the legitimacy of a notice, please call the IRS directly.
