Tax Practice Update

Now phone scammers target taxpayers with threats

 Taxpayers are being warned to be on the lookout for a malicious scam that attempts to intimidate them into paying a fake tax debt over the phone.
"This scam is particularly concerning because it threatens taxpayers with legal action or arrest if they do not immediately hand over money, and their personal financial details, over the phone," said ATO Chief Technology Officer, Todd Heather.
If people receive a call from the ATO and are concerned about providing their personal information over the phone, they should ask for the caller's name and phone them back through the ATO's switchboard on 13 28 69. 

If you are concerned, please call our office first.
