Indiana Department of Revenue

DOR > Individual Income Taxes > Identity Confirmation Identity Confirmation

Thank you for visiting the Indiana Department of Revenue’s Identity Confirmation webpage.

This year the Indiana Department of Revenue is again implementing significantly increased security measures to protect Hoosiers and the state from identity theft and identity fraud.

Last tax season, 11 percent of all requested Indiana tax refund dollars were attempted identity theft! The department’s increased security measures helped the department stop $88 million in attempted identity theft and fraudulent refunds.

How This Works

If you received a letter from the department, you first will need to make sure the name(s) and address information at the top of the letter matches an Indiana income tax return you recently filed. If the information is not accurate or you have not filed an Indiana tax return, please call the department at 317−233−1642 for assistance.

If the information at the top of the letter does match your recently filed Indiana income tax return, all you need to do is complete a simple Identity Confirmation Quiz. This quiz should take no more than 2 minutes and will help us protect your refund and identity. Once your quiz is complete, we will be able to continue processing your return.

To see how it works, watch the video below.

Get Ready for the Quiz

The quiz is based on information associated with the name first listed on the letter you received regarding this quiz. This person is considered the primary taxpayer related to the tax return filed.

Other items you will need to complete the Identity Confirmation Quiz:

  • Social Security number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) of the primary taxpayer
  • Refund amount on your Indiana tax return
  • Tax year indicated on your Identity Confirmation Quiz Letter (underlined in the second paragraph)
