Fairfax County Warns Residents about a Tax Scam

Fairfax County warns residents about a tax scam. Some residents may have received a “distraint warrant” letter from the “Tax Assessment Securities”. This scam alleges that a warrant has been issued against the recipient due to delinquent tax debt and states the Federal Tax Authorities may take enforcement action to satisfy the debt. Fairfax County did not send this letter and is not connected with it in any way. 

If you receive this letter, please disregard it.
