Today we’ll learn about the identity verification
quiz. The identity verification quiz is a new tool we’re using to protect you. It will
prevent someone else from using your identity to file a false tax return. The quiz consists
of four multiple choice questions that only you should know. A small percentage of taxpayers will be required
to take the quiz. If you’re selected, you will receive a letter in the mail. Here are some things to keep in mind when
taking the quiz: Have your letter with you because you’ll need
the letter ID. You’ll also need the last four digits of your
social security number or individual tax identification number.
You can take the quiz online or by telephone. If you are unable to take the quiz, call our
office at 608-264-4598 and a customer service representative will be happy to assist you. Remember, only you can take the quiz. If you
have a legal guardian or power of attorney, they must mail the necessary documents to
confirm your identity. Our priority is to prevent identity theft
and protect taxpayers. Identity verification is one more tool we’re using to serve you. To learn more about identity verification,
