Text messages from HMRC
HMRC are currently exploring new ways of making contact with taxpayers. This includes HMRC leaving an automated voicemail or sending a text message. Both of these methods are currently only being used to ask taxpayers to call HMRC rather than to provide any other specific advice or information. The only telephone number that will be used by HMRC is 0191 225 5348.
If you receive an automated voicemail message or a text message claiming to be from HMRC asking you to contact any other phone number, you should report the matter to your HMRC Contact Centre.
