The Rolling Meadows Police Department, or for that matter ANY police department will NOT come and arrest you for NON payment to the IRS.
If you receive a phone call, text message, email, or voice mail from someone claiming to be from the IRS. DO NOT BELIEVE that person or call them back. It is a SCAM. The scammer will attempt to keep you on the phone and force you to go to your bank and withdraw your hard earned money to give to them. They will force you to go and purchase gift cards, bit coin, green dot money cards and make you give them the number so they are immediately paid. Please, we beg you DO NOT give these scammers your hard earned money.
The best defense is to hang up or do not return their call.
