It is indeed a legit. ATO number apparently, but somehow hacked or diverted by scammers.
They rang my receptionist (from a silent number) and requested a return call to 1300 146 094, then 102 on the prompt., and asked to have the TFN ready.
My accountant has had other clients approached by these mongrels, and after the TFN they request bank details.
The ATO advises against responding to such requests, and to request the name of the individual calling.
I can confirm it is a legitimate number for the ATO too. I returned the call. definately ATO..gst registration..all legit Caller: Ato
Lady claiming to be from ATO. Asked to confirm my details. I refused , she understood and gave me 1300 146 094 with ex 103 and a reference number. I rang ATO on 132861. Was legitimate call. Although calling for my aged mother in laws tax returns not mine. They asked for Mrs. smith. Well that’s me too.
Received advice from my tax agent that ATO does not contact someone via text. So don't respond. rang a different department from website who confirmed it is a valid number I got so many calls from the person today by asking about my abn & gst. I didn't reply as I heard so many times about fraud from callers & then they asking account details. The guy then he sent me a voicemail message in which this number 1300 146 094 is mentioned. Yes it is legitimate, it is their fraud line. You must have made a mistake on your return that has flagged their system ie date of birth. I found this page on the ATO website that lists the number, so I think it's legitimate.
I Googled it and found this number 1300 146 094) on the ATO's website so it's legit.
legit number for the tax office - was received in a text message.
