    Love the way people say it is a scam number, however not bothered to check.
    It is on the ATO website under the contact us area.
    If they are trying to contact you it's because you have not done the right thing.
    If you are suspicious of a caller, hang up and verify the number from their website and call it yourself.

    Unsolicited call
    Australia
    Caller: Claimed to be Australian tax office

    Said they needed to confirmed my details before they could tell me why they were calling, when I said I would not confirm any private details until they could prove to me who they really were they said they couldn't until I proved who I was, stalemate
    Gave me this number and said to call back?
    We use an accountant so they should be going through them with any enquiries

    You are wrong... recommend checking your ATO record ASAP if you haven't already - the GIC will get you! Maybe consider a better accountant while you're at it, yours clearly isn't on top of your affairs

    Caller: THIS IS THE DEBT LINE FOR THE ATO

    Guys THIS IS THE OFFICIAL DEBT LINE FOR THE ATO. Anyone saying otherwise is being lazy and not doing their due diligence.
    Source: my employment, also this official website: https://www.ato.gov.au/about-ato/contact-us/
    https://www.ato.gov.au/general/paying-the-ato/help-with-paying/

    If you receive a call from this number, they will ask you to verify some information to ensure they are speaking to the correct person - understandably with all the scams you may not want to do this - in that case, simply ask for a reference number, look up the official ATO number on the ATO website, and call back.

    Speaking from experience, many accountants are not that good at staying up to date with their client's accounts and communications with the ATO, or may assume their clients are already aware of a debt. If the ATO calls advising of a debt, or you receive a letter with this phone number, and you use an accountant - TALK TO THEM! Get them to *actually* check your tax record out - or just talk to the ATO directly, or check on myGov. If you stick your head in the sand and just hope its a scam, you're gonna have a bad time.

    You also have to advise the ATO if you're no longer working and have no requirement to lodge - the ATO does not know if you have earned self employment income, etc, until you advise them you either have or have not.

    We received what looked like a legitimate letter from Australian Government Taxation Office saying we owed them $500.00. We use an accountant who handles our finances. BE VERY WARY - THIS IS A SCAM LETTER ADDRESSED TO OUR PRIVATE HOUSE. DO NOT BELIEVE THE COMMENTS BELOW SAYING THEY ARE LEGITIMATE. The phone number is also not legitimate.

    Caller: ATO

    This is a legitimate phone number. It's the line for ATO payment plans. I was given this number when speaking with the ATO themselves
