A citizen recently emailed that he was unable to find a phone number or hot line on our web site at which he could report an incidence of tax fraud.
Turns out, DOR has had two such numbers for quite a few years, but they were listed on our web site under the heading Criminal Information Bureau, a name that does not necessarily evoke an association with tax fraud.
As of today, those numbers now appear here under the heading "fraud unit."
All tips received on this line are confidential and are checked out. Leave a voice mail message if no one can get to your phone call right away. The numbers to call are 1-800-792-5254 or 1-617-887-6780.
And thanks for your call.
