New information required for electronic tax filers in Alabama

Posted: Updated:
Montgomery, AL -

Alabama taxpayers filing their state tax returns electronically are supposed to supply new information.

The state Department of Revenue says those filing Forms 40, 40-A and 40 NR should include their driver's license number or non-driver's license number and their date of birth. State Revenue Commissioner Julie Magee says the additional information is for protection against identity theft and fraudulent tax returns. She says the information can be validated quickly and it will not affect the normal processing of a tax return.

The IRS does not require driver's license numbers for Federal returns.  Instead, personal identification numbers's are used to protect those filers that have fallen victim to identity theft.
