Fighting Identity Theft & Income Tax Fraud

What should I do if I received an identity confirmation quiz letter, but I DID NOT file an Ohio income tax return?

You received an identity confirmation quiz letter because an Ohio income tax return was filed using your SSN. You should check with your spouse or tax preparer to ensure an Ohio return was not legitimately filed on your behalf.

If you are sure that the return was not filed by you, your spouse, or your tax preparer, you may be a victim of tax-related identity theft. To confirm that the return is suspect, please call us at 1-855-855-7579 (1-800-750-0750 for persons who use text telephones (TTYs) or adaptive telephone equipment). Representatives are available 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday excluding holidays.

If you determine that the return was legitimately filed on your behalf, you should take the identity confirmation quiz. See the FAQ ”How do I take the identity confirmation quiz?” for more information.
