ATO phone scam

Police. Tasmania Police is currently investigating reports relating to a number of people falling victim to an Australian Taxation Office (ATO) telephone scam.

The ATO tax scam involves a victim being ‘cold called’ and advised that they have an outstanding bill with the ATO which must be paid immediately.

Tasmania Police advise members of the public who may receive a phone call of this nature, or any phone call/email/SMS allegedly from the ATO requesting payment, to discontinue communication and immediately report it to the ATO directly on 132 861.
