Beware Tax Scams

Tax season is upon us. During this time scammers may try to obtain your personal and financial information by claiming to be employees of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).  Be alert to phone calls, text messages, emails, or letters requesting information from you. Remember the CRA does not ask for personal and financial information by text message or email. To help avoid scams, you can contact the CRA directly by calling 1-800-959-8281.  For more information, visit www.cra.gc.ca/fraudprevention
