From time to time, the ATO may contact you by phone – but you should be wary of unsolicited phone calls claiming to be from the ATO and offering you a refund, or demanding payment.
Never give out your bank account details or your tax file number.
The calls - demanding payment - can be upsetting and threatening.
You should contact the ATO or your tax agent if you have any concerns.
