If you receive a call from the IRS that sounds a little strange, especially if you PAID your taxes, you may be victim of a new scam. I was victim of a similar scam today. I received a call from an Illinois number (in which I am not a resident of) saying that I have a warrant for my arrest for failing to comply with the IRS.

That is just one example of the IRS scams that are out there. The Vanderburgh Sheriff's office has received numerous inquiries about this very issue, that they felt it necessary to release a statement on the issue.
