Fighting Identity Theft & Income Tax Fraud For Ohio Tax Payers

Did You Get an Identity Confirmation Quiz Letter? The State of Ohio is sending these letters out to individuals who have filed a State of Ohio Tax Return for Tax Year 2014. These letters started going out for the first time this year. The news reported that 1% of tax payers will receive these letters. We have received multiple calls from clients that have received them. We recommend going to the ohio.gov webste at www.
ohio.gov and clicking on
 "tax forms and information tab". The page will display the following information:

With income tax fraud and identity theft on the rise, the Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) is committed to safeguarding taxpayer dollars by increasing security measures. The identity confirmation quiz is just one of the tools ODT is using to prevent fraudsters from receiving a refund as a result of identity theft.

If you received a letter from us, you’ll need to complete a simple quiz to confirm your identity. If you did not receive a letter, the quiz is not available to you. The quiz should take just a few minutes of your time. Once you have successfully completed the quiz ODT will continue processing your return.

For more details regarding the quiz, watch the tutorial below:

We recommend going to the ohio.gov website and not use the link provided in the letter. When you go through the different tabs to find the quiz, the web address of that page should match the web address given in the letter. If the two addresses do not match, then the letter you received is a scam. If you have any questions, you can contact the office, talk to someone at the State Office, or take the quiz online at the office. Thank you.
