Say No Thank You and do not provide a California driver’s license or State identification (ID) card to anybody preparing an e-file 2015 California personal income tax return.
The answer is no; California driver license or state ID card information is not required to e-file a California tax return and tax returns will not be rejected if this information isn’t provided. However, California, along with many state revenue agencies is requesting additional information this filing season in an effort to combat stolen-identity tax fraud and to protect taxpayers and their refunds. Several popular computerized tax preparation programs will now include input fields for this information. Providing a driver license or state ID number is voluntary at this time but may help process a tax return more efficiently. Another tip from sacramento cpa islip + company.
