New ‘identity quiz’ may delay state tax refunds
(page 2 of 2)
The Identity Verification Quiz can be completed over the phone or online. Taxpayers who are unable to take the quiz by either of those processes can call the state’s customer service representative, who will help with the quiz. Third parties will not be allowed to respond to the quiz on taxpayers’ behalf.
As a result of this new security measure, some state refunds may be delayed this year. Although some people may find this inconvenient, it’s more important to ensure that taxpayers receive their refunds and that the fraudsters committing these crimes are stopped.
