It has been brought to our attention that several of our clients have received scam emails or fake phone calls supposedly from the ATO in regard to their refunds or any other ATO matters. Please let it be known, the ATO does NOT email clients, nor do they ring you directly. Our office is the primary contact point between you and the ATO. That is why our phone number appears on the front page of your tax return. If there are any queries in regard to your accounts, the ATO will contact us first- as we are your registered tax agent. We will then relay messages on to you, if necessary. So if you receive any emails, do NOT open them or respond. Simply delete them. If you receive any phone calls, do not give them any personal details. Simply tell them to contact our office.
