Please ensure you are entering all required information about the driver license: 

  1. Pick issuing state from a drop down
  2. Enter ID number (depending on a state there may be different formatting requirements, e.g. numbers only. if you haven't entered the ID number in a correct format, the software will show you an error message and what is required)
  3. Select issue and expiration date formats and enter the dates.
  4. If you are filing a NY return and have a NY driver's license, you will also be required to enter Document Number (the first 3 characters). Depending on when your driver's license was issued, the Document Number will be displayed on the front and/or back of your document. When listed on the back, it is proceeded with "IDUSA". Please do not enter these characters on the Document Number field.
