The Winthrop Police Department is warning residents against IRS tax scams. Residents are right to be suspicious if  they receive a call or email from someone stating they are with the IRS. Every year during tax season, crooks come out with new scams to try to steal your personal information and money.

They may call you or send an official-looking e-mail saying that the IRS needs your Social Security or bank account number to deposit your refund, or they may say that you owe money and ask for your credit card or you can be arrested unless you send cash through a prepaid debit card or wire transfer. They may manipulate the caller ID to look like they’re calling from the IRS and may already have some information about you – such as the last four digits of  your Social Security number.  The IRS will never call or e-mail you demanding immediate payment or asking for your credit card or bank account numbers and other personal information over the phone. If you think you may actually owe money, call the IRS directly at 800-829-1040.




Winthrop officials are preparing for significant new growth in Center area, among other key areas. The question to be discussed is, “how can we manage our parking supply in ways that will facilitate economic development without compromising our small town character?

Residents are invited to come to the EB Newton School, Lyceum Room, Thursday, July 13 at 6:00 pm in EB Newton School, Lyceum Room.

Please join the Winthrop Transportation Advisory Committee and Town Manager’s office for a free public workshop on parking policy and management best practices that will support a vibrant, accessible Winthrop and a strong local economy.
