Be aware of scams

Be aware of scams

The ATO want you to be better informed so you don’t fall prey to tax scams.

They are reminding you how to recognise, report and protect yourself from identity theft and tax related scams.

They are also working closely with retailers and the police, issuing a variety of scam warning flyers to help educate and protect you.

The ATO will never:

  • call you to demand immediate payment of a tax debt
  • threaten you with immediate arrest, jail or deportation
  • ask you to pay a tax debt with vouchers such as iTunes or Google play, or by bitcoin
  • ask you to pay a fee to release a tax refund.

Help spread the word by having a conversation with your employees, family and friends to raise awareness about tax scams and what to do if you suspect you’re being scammed.
