ATO TO SEND TEXT MESSAGES IF BANK ACCOUNT DETAILS INCORRECT

The ATO has advised that will send SMS text messages directly to taxpayers where incorrect bank account details were included in their tax returns and they were entitled to a refund.

The SMS will advise impacted taxpayers that:

· Their refund cannot be processed due to incorrect bank details; and

· They should phone the ATO on 13 28 1 to correct their details.

If impacted taxpayers contact the ATO with their correct details within seven days, any refund due will be issued electronically.

The authenticity of ATO correspondence can be verified by calling the ATO on 1800 008 540; however, if you are ever unsure about any correspondence received, please contact our office.
