Received a mail communication for identity confirmation quiz Ohio's commitment for stopping tax fraud

Please explain more.    What kind of  "mail communication?"    Who was it from?   Does it appear to be from the Ohio Dept. of Taxation?

 

If it was an email, then be aware there are a lot of scams going around.  Do NOT click on any links or download any attachments.  Do not provide any ID information.   Discuss it with TurboTax Support by phone on Monday via the page I tell you about below.

 

If it was a postal mail that looks like it from the Ohio Department of Taxation, phone the TurboTax free Audit Support Center on Monday, and they can help you determine if the letter is real and how to respond to it.

 

To get the phone number, go to the page at the link below, click the blue "Get Help" button, and follow the prompts.  The page says "IRS letter", but they will help with a state letter as well.


Hours are 5AM-5PM Pacific (8AM-8PM Eastern) Monday-Friday.

If necessary, you can phone the Ohio Dept. of Taxation on Monday to ask about it.  Use the contact phone number on their website--not one on the letter.

I'm also going to ask one of the Community's Super helpers familiar with Ohio to watch this thread in case he has any info to add about the notice.    @Hal_Al  Are you aware of these notices in Ohio?  Thanks.

Yes, this is a common Ohio thing.  See https://www.tax.ohio.gov/IdentityTheft-IDQuiz.aspx
