WARNING: Please Be Aware of ATO Phone Scams
We have heard of a recent phone scam by a person claiming to be from the Australian Taxation Office. They know your name and address and warn you that you have an outstanding debt with the ATO. They say the Australian Federal Police is on its way with a warrant for your arrest if you do not agree to pay on the spot. The caller will use an aggressive tone intending to frighten you. The ATO will never do this.
If you have any doubt, refer them to TannerSALT Accountants. We have a vast knowledge of how the ATO operates and we will be able to handle their queries for you. To learn more about the various scams relating to the Australian Taxation Office please click here:
