Watch out for calls offering tax refund

Email News Alerts

The Minnesota Department of Revenue is warning taxpayers of a new scam that targets their personal or banking information.  

A group, referring to itself as "Alliance," calls taxpayers and claims to be "Minnesota Internal Service Representatives." Alliance claims there is a large refund waiting for the taxpayer.  


Alliance says it can send the fake refund if the taxpayer provides bank account details and pays a small penalty fee.
