On an earlier blog, we discussed the Department's Tax Fraud Hotline and where to call if someone wished to report an incidence of tax fraud. A reader, "VN," asks if DOR has an e-mail address for fraud reports. The answer is that we don't. The reason? In a word, security. The Department strongly advises against any e-mail containing confidential information. Instead, we urge citizens to call our toll-free Hotline at 1-800 792-5254 or at 617-887-6780.
All tips received on this line are confidential and are checked out. Please leave a voice mail message if no one can get to your phone call right away.
