Personal Income Tax Scam Warning

Posted by Jordon N. Rosen, CPA, AEP

The Delaware Division of Revenue has issued an alert regarding a new taxpayer scam designed to trick taxpayers into thinking they have received official communication from the Division of Revenue. The victim will receive a letter entitled “The Bureau of Tax Enforcement” that threatens property seizure and wage garnishment unless they call a toll-free number to avoid enforcement. The scammers access public records to include taxpayer-specific information on the notices to make them appear legitimate. Taxpayers who have received such a letter are advised to contact the Delaware Division of Revenue at 302.577.8200, option 3, with any questions.

 

More information can be found on the Delaware Division of Revenue’s website.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us at 302.225.0600 or info@belfint.com.
