The Office of State Revenue (OSR) has become aware of an email scam whereby emails purporting to be from State Revenue Offices have been circulating in other jurisdictions.
These emails threaten penalties for unpaid payroll tax and contain a poorly worded 'notice of assessment'. The emails also contain attachments, or links to web pages, that should not be opened as they may contain malware.
If you receive an email of this nature or believe that an email may be a scam, you can contact the OSR on 08 9262 1300 to verify any emails or notices you have received from this office.
State Revenue’s mission is 'To administer revenue laws and grant and subsidy schemes in a fair and efficient manner for the community'.
State Revenue began as the State Taxation Department in 1970 and was amalgamated with Treasury in 2001. On 1 July 2011, State Revenue became part of the new Department of Finance. As an office dedicated to the administration of revenue, grant and subsidy schemes, not all State Revenue clients are taxpayers.
