Why is the Department of Taxation requiring an email address on electronically filed income tax returns?

Your email address assists the Department in combating income tax fraud. The Department may also use the email address to communicate relevant information and reminders (such as a failure to file or pay a bill) to taxpayers.

No personal identifiable information will ever be requested in an e-mail from the Department. The Department will NOT sell or otherwise distribute the email address you provide.
