Verification Process

Identity Theft and Non-IRS Filers

Individuals Who Were Victims of IRS Identity Theft

A victim of IRS identity theft who is not able to obtain a 2013 IRS Tax Return Transcript or use the IRS DRT must contact the IRS at 1-800-908-4490. Upon authentication of the tax filer's identity, the IRS will provide, by U.S. Postal Service, a printout of the tax filer's 2013 IRS income tax return information. 

In addition, please provide SMU with IRS Form 14039 that was filed by IRS or a copy of the police report that you filed after learning your identity was stolen. 

Individuals Who Filed Non-IRS Income Tax Returns

An individual who filed or will file a 2013 income tax return with Puerto Rico, another U.S. territory (e.g. Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Northern Marianas Islands), or with a foreign country, must provide a signed copy of that 2013 income tax return(s).
