IRS Scam Information



The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office has been informed that the IRS phone scams are back on the rise. In the most recent calls the caller will tell you that IRS have filed a “law suit” against you and will provide you with a number to call to make arrangements for payments.
Below are tips from the IRS to help identify scammers:
Here are five things the scammers often do but the IRS will not do.
Any one of these five things is a tell-tale sign of a scam.
The IRS will never:
• Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill.
• Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
• Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
• Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
• Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, here’s what you should do:
If you don’t owe taxes, or have no reason to think that you do:
• Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately.
• Contact TIGTA to report the call. Use their “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” web page. You can also call 800-366-4484.
• Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the “FTC Complaint Assistant” on Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" in the notes.

Georgia Secondary Metal Recycler Laws

New Georgia Secondary Recycler Registration Form- Click to View

2012 Compliance Guide- Click to View


Georgia’s New
Secondary Metal Recycler Laws
Georgia’s laws dealing with secondary metals or “scrapping” have changed significantly. Amendments made in 2012 to the Regulated Metals Recycling Law (O.C.G.A. §§10-1-350 through 10-1-363) significantly change how the metal recycling industry conducts business.

These changes now require anyone meeting the definition of a Secondary Metals Recycler must now register with the county sheriff.
A Secondary Metals Recycler is anyone engaged in Georgia in the business of paying compensation for the purchase of Regulated Metal Property whether or not the person operates from a fixed location or otherwise and whether or not the person is engaged in converting such property into raw material products. This includes any person located in a residence buying metals or buying metals from a truck parked on public or private property.
The Regulated Metals Recycling Law impacts almost every aspect of a Secondary Metal Recycler’s business operations including recordkeeping, the form of payment for purchase transactions, hours of operation, types of Regulated Metal Property it may purchase and from whom it may purchase the metals.
They may no longer pay cash for purchases (other than in exempt transactions). Their business hours have been reduced. They must obtain and retain in their records additional information regarding purchase transactions. Purchases of certain types of Regulated Metal Property (air conditioning coils, burned copper wire and burial memorials) are restricted to certain sellers with proper licenses or documentation. Finally, recyclers will be subject to more stringent penalties for failure to comply with the law.
