The Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) is reminding taxpayers that data thieves don’t take a summer vacation. In fact, summertime tends to be a favorite period for tax scammers, as many individuals are awaiting a response from DOR or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after filing their tax returns. Tax scammers try to get individuals to disclose personal information, such as their Social Security number, account information and/or passwords. Neither DOR nor the IRS will initiate contact with customers by email to request personal or financial information. Anyone receiving suspicious emails or other forms of communication related to taxes should contact DOR at email@example.com or the IRS at firstname.lastname@example.org. Information regarding reported tax scams is available on the DOR website at www.in.gov/dor/6349.htm. Customers may call DOR Customer Service at 317-232-2240, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. EST with any questions or concerns.
