Main details inside.. but the title pretty much says it. IRS and potential repo men involved.

OK, so I've searched the IRS website fairly extensively, but am coming up with nothing.
I'm getting mail to my house, addressed for my neighbor of 15+ years, from the IRS. First time was about a year ago, and once or twice over the year. I didn't think anything of it - figured a computer input error - one house number off, they're a nice older couple, retired, lots of kids - they have some of their own and had adopted a bunch. So generally, we thought decent folk.
So this morning, a tow truck showed up and seems they came to my address first before figuring out my car didn't match, and going to the neighbors and carting it away. So now, I have to think this address mismatch wasn't much of a mistake as possibly intentional.
So, I want to contact the IRS and get them to fix the name/address association in their systems before anything gets pinned to my address.
I don't think its technically identity theft, but, hey - I want the IRS to fix their address, especially if these folks are having money issues.
