Life Interests Testamentary Trusts


The ATO is aware of an increasing number of people reporting attempted scams by people stating they are calling from the ATO. These calls are threatening in nature and involve a demand to pay a fictitious debt immediately over the phone.

The ATO has a direct number (1800 008 540) you can call in the event you are contacted by someone and are unsure if they are from the tax office.  

Please also be aware that scammers can also claim to be from other government agencies.
