With the University of Arizona's fall semester starting Monday, the IRS has a warning about a scam targeting students and parents. 

The agency says scammers are demanding payments for fake taxes like the federal student tax.

If a student refuses to pay the caller threatens to report them to police.

The IRS wants to remind the public that they will never call to demand payment, ask for credit card information over the phone, or threaten to call police.
