Tax filing tip 2017

This tax filing year we will be now required to enter driver license information on tax returns. As you gather your documents we ask that you bring either your driver license or a photocopy of your driver’s license with you. This change is due to New York state following the lead of the IRS to capture taxpayers’ driver license or state-issued ID (non-driver ID) information for their electronically-filed personal income tax returns as an additional verification device to deter fraud. For your convenience, you can read the requirements in full here:…/pit/driver-license-requirements.pdf Thank you for your cooperation.
