The Minnesota Department of Revenue is warning taxpayers of scammers trying to access personal or banking information.
An unknown group claiming to be "Minnesota Revenue" calls taxpayers and requests more information so a larger refund can be issued.
The department says it will never ask you to provide, update or verify personal information over the phone or via email.
Officials advise anyone that receives suspicious phone calls or emails to report them to the Department of Revenue by calling 651-296-3781 or 1-800-652-9094.
