The Ohio Department of Taxation requires a driver’s license or state ID number on all electronic returns. If you don’t have either, you must declare so on the return.
The driver’s license or state ID is required because the IRS and many other states are require additional information from taxpayers to help protect their personal information and to combat tax fraud.
Corrigan Krause asks all clients to provide a copy of their driver’s license or state ID with their tax return documentation sent to us. Providing this information up front will keep your return from being held up in electronic filing.
