The ATO are cautioning tax payers to be super vigilant of the email spammers and telephone scammers.

 

Things to remember:

 

  • the ATO would never ask for your tax file number or bank details via telephone, SMS or email
  • beware of fake myGov notifications when online
  • beware of ASIC emails if you have a business asking for a renewal payment
  • never give out your TFN or DOB to a request over the phone or via email/text from an unknown source

 

Remember, as your Tax Agent, we should be receiving any tax related messages via telephone on your behalf.

 

If you are ever unsure about a suspicious email or call, don’t act on it. Contact our office to be safe and sure.
