Some States Now Require Driver's License for E-Filing Tax Returns

During this tax filing season, more and more states are requiring tax return preparers to include driver's license numbers (or another form of state-issued identification) for e-filing of tax returns, as a measure to help combat identity and refund theft. Although Missouri has not yet mandated this security feature, it is likely to happen soon as identity and refund theft become more of an issue.  In preparation for this change, we will be requesting this information from our clients this year, if we do not already have it on file.  Should you have any questions concerning this new security measure, please contact us anytime.
