Important information for homeowners about fake ‘tax refund’ calls

Tarion has recently learned that homeowners have been contacted by an organization claiming to be Tarion offering them a tax refund and requesting their banking information. In these phone calls, the organization may identify itself as Tarion, a home warranty company or the ‘Ontario governing body that provides warranty coverage for homes’, and may refer to a carbon tax, environmental tax or green tax.

Please be advised that these calls are not from Tarion

Tarion does not charge nor refund carbon taxes or any other environmental tax, and we are not affiliated with any organization claiming to do so. 

If you are contacted by an organization offering a tax refund of any kind, do not provide any personal or financial information over the phone. 

If you have been targeted in this phone scam you should report it by visiting the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website at www.antifraudcentre.ca  or by calling 1-888-495-8501.
