Cyber Safety at Tax Time

Learn how you can stay safe

Watch out for scammers at tax time! Scammers often impersonate the Australian Tax office and demand payment for fake tax debts. Remember, the ATO will never ask you to pay your tax debt with pre-paid cards or with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. For electronic payment of tax debts, the ATO accepts payment into an account held by the Reserve Bank of Australia only.
