    We all have roles to play in preventing refund fraud.

    The Virginia Department of Taxation is committed to stopping refund fraud and protecting your information.

    • When you file your tax return, it will be processed using selection criteria intended to detect possible fraud.

    • Our Refund Review Team examines documentation to verify a taxpayer’s identity if fraud is suspected.

    • We issue personal identification numbers (PINs) to victims of identity theft to use when they file their Virginia individual income tax returns.

    Tax Refund Fraud Prevention

  • Refund Fraud Prevention

    The Virginia Department of Taxation takes the protection of your information seriously.

    Additional Steps to Protect You - and the Commonwealth As identify theft and refund fraud become more widespread, we are enlisting the support of taxpayers, tax preparers, employers, and payroll providers to stop tax fraud. This year, we may request additional information from you to verify your return. In addition, we may take longer than in previous years to process your tax return.

    We are committed to safeguarding taxpayer information.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO Take these steps to protect yourself from identity theft and refund fraud:

    • Do not provide personal information by mail, phone, email, or text to an unknown person

    • File your taxes early – and file electronically

    • Be sure you have all W-2s and other withholding statements before you file

    • Include your Virginia Driver’s License Identification number and Issue Date on your return

    If you are a victim of identity theft, we suggest you consider all of the following steps: • Contact the three credit bureaus and

    your bank(s) to notify them • Contact your local police or sheriff’s

    department to file a criminal complaint

    • Submit Form 14039 Identity Theft Affidavit to the IRS

    • Contact the Virginia Department of Taxation’s Identity Theft Information line at 804-404-4185

    Thank you for helping us prevent refund fraud.
