Why Did I Have to Give a Copy of My Driver’s License to My Tax Preparer?

Your tax preparer may have requested a copy of your driver’s license while gathering information for your tax return this past year. Some states now require tax preparers to collect information from driver’s licenses as an effort to further authenticate taxpayers’ identity and deter fraudulently filed returns. However, be aware that your driver’s license number is considered just as important as your Social Security number so you should diligently protect that information!
