  • Keep safe from scams

    Scams are designed to trick you into:

    • paying money you don't owe
    • giving away your personal information (such as your TFN).

    Here are some simple tips to avoid scams:

    • Don’t put your tax file number (TFN) on your resume. Only give it to your employer after you have started work.
    • Don't let your friends or family members use your TFN
    • Don't share your online passwords with anyone.
    • Don't include your TFN, passwords or other sensitive information in emails.
    • If you are using a tax agent, make sure they’re registered.
