During this holiday season of family and giving, the Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) is urging taxpayers and tax preparers to remain vigilant in protecting private information from scam artists.
The department says fraudsters use this time of year to target unsuspecting tax filers and tax professionals with tax-related scams that are over the phone, text or email (including phishing schemes), unsecure Wi-Fi, a data breach or hacking email accounts to obtain login passwords and financial data. Thieves also use card-skimming devices and will attempt to steal unattended personal mail.
To help prevent being the victim of identity theft, ADOR recommends the following:
Arizona taxpayers can also contact the Department of Revenue’s Identity Theft Call Center at 602-716-6300, toll-free: 1-800-352-4090, or https://azdor.gov/individual-income-tax-information/identity-theft.
The Arizona Department of Revenue has an advanced fraud prevention system in place and continues to adapt and introduce new counter measures to address ongoing consumer scams.
