is 02 90246713 a legitment phone number of ATO?
Good question, but....
What may be worth considering here is that call 'spoofing' and VOIP tricks used regularly by scammers will make a call look like it's coming from another (sometimes legitimate) number.
In other words, scammers hijack or imitate phone numbers, either to imitate a person, business or department to get money or information. If the ATO phone you there's generally no caller ID.
If you’re ever unsure whether a call claiming to be from ATO is authentic, just hang up and phone the number found in this link.
