Electronic Alabama Tax Returns Seek New Info

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

Alabama taxpayers who are 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.

A spokesman for the Internal Revenue Service says driver's license numbers are not required on federal income tax returns. Instead, the IRS assigns a special personal identification number to victims of identity theft to provide security on their next returns.o
