ADOR Warning About Third-Party Tax Collection Letters

The Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) is warning taxpayers about tax collection letters from a third-party collections agency using the title “Distraint Warrant.” These notices are not sanctioned by ADOR; the department does not currently use third-party tax collectors.⠀

According to ADOR, the unsanctioned Distraint Warrant letter advises the recipient of unpaid taxes to the State of Arizona and that the “State of Arizona uses the warrant in collection actions, such as garnishment of wages, bank accounts, property seizures, federal tax refund offset, and creation of a property lien.” The notice then provides a deadline to call a 1-800 number. DO NOT call the number!⠀
