According to reports, tax-time scams in 2018 saw more than 114,000 reports and $2.8 million lost.
Tax-time scams are getting more sophisticated, with some scammers pretending to be us (your tax agents) or claiming to be from trusted authorities such the ATO or myGov.
Please remember – The ATO will never ask for payment over the phone. Nor will we (unless you call us). If you are emailed an invoice or debt from the ATO, check with us first.
Everything might be legitimate in the end, but without asking the question, you are exposed. Be safe, not sorry.
