Beware! State Tax Lien Scam in Florida
The Hernando County Clerk's office has received notification regarding a scam involving tax liens. Florida residents are receiving letters from the "State Taxing Authority", which is not a government agency, claiming that they have "Outstanding State Taxes". They insist on satisfying liens which do not exist. Florida does not have a State Tax.
The letters may include a lien date, amount, actions that may be taken against you, filing county name, case number, your address and instructions for you to contact them.
Please pass along this information to your friends and family so that they do not become a victim of this scam.
