Is this a fake letter or am I actually being audited?
I just received a letter of inquiry in the mail from my “state treasury department” saying a state tax return has been filed under my name and address (it has) and this tax return and/or homestead property tax credit (don’t think I received that one) has been selected for review, and it says I have to confirm my identity by either going to the government website or by sending in copies of my driver’s license, W-2s, 1099s, etc in order to help protect taxpayers and the state from identity theft.
Seems legit to me I think but – thoughts? I was wondering why it was taking so long for me to receive my state return so it makes sense now I guess
Edit: thanks everybody! I am going to call the number on the state website (NOT the one from the letter) when they open on Monday.
