Department of Revenue Warns of Tax Season Scams
May 12, 2021
The Montana Department of Revenue warns all Montanans to be aware of numerous scams and frauds related to their tax information and refunds.
Some common tax season scams include:
•Paying for a refund: If a caller says they have your tax refund, but you'll have to pay a "fee" to receive it, it's a scam. The Department of Revenue will never demand money before giving you your refund.
•Threatening arrest, or seizure of your property: Taxpayers have received letters saying they owe taxes to Montana, and that the state will seize their property, or even file a warrant for their arrest.
