Welcome to Online Filing and Payments
Under LDR’s new fraud prevention system, all state income tax returns are subject to verification with
state-of-the-art identity authentication software. LDR began processing 2012 tax returns on February 15, 2013.
The first refunds began issuing on February 26. If the system flags a return as suspicious, LDR will direct
the taxpayer to a customized online data test or a telephone survey for a secure method of identity
verification and final certification of the return.
