The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) reminds taxpayers to stay alert in protecting their confidential information from getting in the wrong hands. Be cautious of companies or individuals who contact you offering free incentives or asking to receive money.
Keep in mind ADOR will never:
+ Use unsolicited email, text messages, or any social media to discuss your personal tax issue.
+ Call to demand immediate payment; nor call about taxes owed without first having mailed you an official demand notice.
+ Demand that you pay taxes without giving you an opportunity to question or appeal the stated amount owed.
+ Require you to use a specific payment method to pay your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
+ Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
Questions or concerns should be directed to the Department of Revenue’s Identity Theft Call Center, at 602-716-6300 or 1-800-352-4090, the Internal Revenue Service, or Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).
