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.
