Filing a State Return in Ohio? Bring Your Driver’s License

January 26, 2017

Ohio, along with other states, will require driver’s license information for the primary taxpayer and spouse (if Married Filing Jointly) beginning in tax year 2016 in an effort to combat stolen-identity tax fraud. Taxpayers will be asked to provide the information from their driver’s license or state issued identification card.  This will include: ID License Number, Issue Date,  and Expiration Date. For taxpayers who do not have a driver’s license or state ID card, they will have the option to indicate such and still be allowed to e-file. For more details, please ask your NMS accountant.
