Tax Refund SMS Scams | July 2022

Tax Refund SMS Scams | July 2022

We’re concerned about a high volume of SMS scams pretending to be from the ATO.

These scams tell you that you’re owed an income tax repayment and ask you to click a hyperlink and complete a form.

Clicking the link takes you to a fake ATO webpage that asks for your personal identifying information, including your credit card details.

If you receive an SMS like this, don’t click on any links. Report the scam to us.

The image below shows one example of what this scam can look like.

The real ATO will never send you an SMS with a link to log in to our online services. We’ll also never ask for your credit card details.

If you’re ever unsure whether it’s really the ATO, don’t reply. Phone the ATO on 1800 008 540 to check.
