Secure Your Tax Refunds: Respond Promptly to Identity Verification Letter Requests

Idaho Tax Commission Halts $30.1 Million in Fraudulent Tax Refunds, Urges Swift Response to Identity Verification Requests

Idaho State Tax Commission’s Vigilance Thwarts Tax Fraud, Protects Taxpayer

BOISE, Idaho (KIFI)  – Last year, the Idaho State Tax Commission took decisive action against tax fraud, sending out over 2,400 letters to verify identities and preventing a whopping $30.1 million from falling into the hands of identity thieves. Chairman Jeff McCray emphasized their commitment to safeguarding taxpayer dollars from criminals while ensuring timely refunds for law-abiding citizens. Victims of identity theft often discover the breach only upon receiving these verification letters, prompting the need for swift response to confirm their identity and resume refund processing.

Every tax return undergoes rigorous fraud detection checks before tax refunds are issued, with recipients urged to promptly address any verification requests. Failure to respond may delay the refund process until identity verification is completed. Those who receive verification letters without having filed a return are advised to seek assistance from the Tax Commission, as they may be victims of identity theft needing guidance on the necessary steps to rectify the situation.
