Washington Seniors Targeted in Phone Scam

This is particularly troubling since some of the information provided to taxpayers is incorrect. For example, one taxpayer was told he could have a refund on property taxes paid for the five previous years and in another case tenants were told they qualified for a property tax exemption on their rental home.

At this point, we want to make the public aware of this marketing campaign in case you receive calls from this solicitor. So far, Department of Revenue has received calls from taxpayers in Grays Harbor, Clark, Lewis, and Thurston counties.

If you or someone you know is contacted by this solicitor, please contact the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Department with the information at 360-249-3711 and get as much information from the solicitor as possible.
