New phone scam targets Washington businesses

Dec 5, 2017 - 06:16 PM

The Washington Department of Revenue is warning businesses to be aware of a new telephone scam.

The scammers fraudulently claim to be from Revenue and request over-the-phone payment to renew expired business licenses.

The Department of Revenue will never ask for or take payment for license renewals over the phone. The department mails businesses a notice about six weeks before their renewal is due and a delinquent notice a week after the license expires.

License renewals should be made through a business’s secure My DOR account.

Businesses that receive one of these fraudulent calls and want to check their license status should visit the My DOR website at http://secure.dor.wa.gov and log in to review their account information.
