We need your help.
We ask that you become ever-vigilant about protecting your personal information.
Sometimes, crime happens to innocent people. We ask that you contact us if your identity is ever stolen. Make a call to Taxpayer Services personnel at 800-982-8297 and let us know.
We ask that you bear with us as we take the time necessary to scrutinize your returns and verify your identity. It could mean you get your refund more slowly, but it also means no one else gets a refund in your name.
