Self Assessment taxpayers urged to be alert to fraudsters and scams
HMRC have issued particular warning to Self Assessment taxpayers, saying they should guard against being targeted by fraudsters.
Criminals claiming to be from HMRC have targeted individuals by email, text and phone with their communications - ranging from offering bogus tax rebates to threatening arrest for tax evasion.
But, HMRC warn, contacts like these should sound alarm bells as HMRC would never call threatening arrest.
