This is a scam. The IRS will not call you asking for money. You would receive a notice in the mail, not a phone call. Hang up and block the number they are calling from.

IRS-Impersonation Telephone Scam

An aggressive and sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, has been making the rounds throughout the country. Callers claim to be employees of the IRS, but are not. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling.

Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting.

Or, victims may be told they have a refund due to try to trick them into sharing private information.

If the phone isn't answered, the scammers often leave an “urgent” callback request.

Note that the IRS will never: 1) call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill; 2) demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe; 3) require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card; 4) ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone; or 5) threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

yes right he was talking about arrest/deportation and insisting to do not talk to my husband about the case even i told him my husband is the only person he make me understand things here

from where he get my phone number? and my name and last name ?

i was nervous at point i waned to call the police , now i think i just have to hang up and turn my phone off,

he stopped the call , then he called back

When I get calls like that, I tell them to mail me official letter. Or I find the real phone number ( in your case IRS) and call them to check if its true.

Don't talk to this person, hang up and block the number.

This is an automatic red flag. Anyone that insists you not speak to someone else is a scammer.

Not sure where he got your information but unfortunately dealing with the government many times means some of your information is available in public databases. If your phone has the ability to block numbers do that now. Also pay attention to similar numbers that may call. Many times once these people think they have you hooked they will call from multiple numbers if you start block them. Just hang up and block any other attempts they may try.
