    Keeping the system fair

    We're working hard to maintain the integrity of the COVID-19 stimulus measures.

    If you feel an individual or business is not acting within the guidelines of the COVID-19 measures, you can make a tip-off to us.

    We're aware of Australians being targeted with COVID-19 and other scams. If you think you've been contacted by a scammer or are suspicious about an email, SMS or phone call, check with us first.

    If you are concerned that your tax or super information has been stolen or used without your permission you should:

    • check your myGov account if you have one and make sure your details are still correct
    • contact our Client Identity Support Centre on 1800 467 033 to help you protect your tax identity.
