Michigan taxpayers with past-due tax debts should be aware of an aggressive scam that's making the rounds through the U.S. Postal Service, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury).
Taxpayers receive what appears to be a government-looking letter about an overdue tax bill, asking individuals to contact a toll-free number to resolve a state tax debt. The correspondence appears credible because it uses specific personal facts about their real outstanding debt that's pulled from publicly available information.
Taxpayers who receive a letter from a scammer or have questions about their state debts should call Treasury Collections Service Center at 517-636-5265. A customer service representative can log the scam, verify outstanding state debts and provide flexible payment options.
To learn more about Michigan's taxes and the collections process, go to www.michigan.gov/taxes or follow the state Treasury Department on Twitter at @MITreasury.
