Ohio, along with other states, will require driver’s license information for the primary taxpayer and spouse (if Married Filing Jointly) beginning in the tax year 2016 to combat stolen identity tax fraud. Taxpayers will be asked to provide the information from their driver’s license or state-issued identification card. 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.
This requirement is new this year, and please be prepared to present copies of your driver’s license as part of your tax documents this year for Ohio residence. Kentucky and Indiana residents this is not required but optional.
