Identity Theft and Phishing

Did you receive a phone call, e-mail, or letter about your Iowa taxes? How do you know the communication received is actually from the Iowa Department of Revenue?

  • The Department does not initiate contact with taxpayers by e-mail to request personal or financial information. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media.

  • The Iowa Department of Revenue will always identify itself.

  • You will never be asked to provide your full Social Security Number by e-mail.
