Ohio Department of Taxation Falls Victim to Identity Theft

State and Local Tax

By Allen Wassel

The Ohio Department of Taxation ("Department") issued an Individual Income Tax Alert to inform taxpayers and tax practitioners of potential delays in the processing of refund requests due to the theft of personal identification numbers during the 2014 filing season.

The Ohio Tax Commissioner, Joe Testa, indicated that the delay may extend into the 2015 tax filing season.

The Tax Alert can be accessed via the Department's website, and those interested can also view an interview with Commissioner Joe Testa.
