Fraudsters send out fake notices from the tax. Here's how not to fall for their bait
Right / / December 24, 2019
The Federal Tax Service (FTS) reminds citizens that it is time to pay taxes, using notices, including paper. This is used by fraudsters to disguise their emails at the departure from office.
Fake notifications come in envelopes, branded "a tax", and looks almost the same. Only the details and QR-code It forces you to transfer money is not the state, and attackers. In addition, the amount of platozhke often higher than it actually is.
Why it happens
The reason for data leakage. To send a fake letter from the tax, the attackers have to get your name, surname and patronymic name, registration address, VAT number and information about your existing property. It is not very sensitive data, so get to the criminals they can from anywhere.
How not to be deceived
Remember, whether you should receive a notification
Certain categories of taxpayers documents by mail should never have come. You treat, if they are:
- Do you have privileges, deduction or other grounds that exempt you from paying the tax.
- You have added a tax of less than 100 rubles. In this case, a notice will be sent in a year or two, as soon as you owe a large amount.
- You have no legal property. For example, if the apartment is decorated in the spouse, then he will receive a notification only.
- You signed up for a private office at Online tax. The default notice from the department will now come here. To get them on the paper form, you must notify such desire FTS. If you did not, wait for the letter is not necessary to mail.
Here's what to look out for.
- Payment details. As the recipient should be given the Federal Treasury Department, in the "Beneficiary Bank" - General Bank of Russia for your region.
- Information about this property. It is likely that fraudsters are not able to get all the data about your apartment and a car, and something just came up, such as footage or inventory number. Double-check everything before you pay. This is useful in any case, since she and the Federal Tax Service is sometimes mistaken. In this case, you can even charge the tax incorrectly. How to quickly make changes to the notification already Layfhaker I wrote.
- The amount of tax. The man who once a year pay taxes, can not always keep track of all the changes in this area. But if the amount in the notice much more than before - it is an occasion guard. To validate the data, go to the Members Area on FNS website. The easiest way to log in there through the "Public services". At the same time solve the problem for good with paper notices.
What if you transferred money attackers
Write a statement about the fraud to the police. Not the fact that you will be happy there, and the money will be returned. However, if one does not wag his hand on the lost funds, and contact the police, it will increase the chance of opening the criminal scheme. Fraudsters just counting on the carelessness and laziness of people, because usually we are talking about small sums.
By the way, in 2019, the deadline for the payment of taxes - 2 December. On December 3 will already accrue interest, so it is better not to delay.
