A phishing email claiming to be from the ATO is currently circulating.
The email claims that the recipient is entitled to a tax refund and states they should click the embedded link and complete the online form.
DO NOT click on the link in the email as it opens a fake webpage that will attempt to obtain your tax file number.
The ATO will never email you asking for personal or credit card details and you should never provide this information. If received you should delete the email immediately.
When accessing ATO online services, only do so by typing directly into your browser.
