Scammers Target Tax Commish


The man who is in charge of tax collection in Connecticut and often warns of scammers and hackers was himself targeted by a con artist. Commissioner of Revenue Services Kevin Sullivan received a call this week, warning him he owed the money to the IRS and need to pay right away or be arrested.


During a taping of Face the State set to air Sunday on WFSB, Sullivan talked the scam, which is widespread, but he was invited on the program to talk about the budget deficit. Last week, we reported the deficit was higher than the week before due to a reduction in income tax collected. What’s the deal?

As you’ll see Sullivan explain on Sunday, there are many factors, including billionaires in our state who made less money in 2015. Also, some people who make a lot of money have moved out, and those who are moving in, are earning less. It’s a fascinating conversation into a facet of the Connecticut economy.

Tune in Sunday morning at 11AM on WFSB.
