Each of the following commercial products have been tested and approved to electronically transmit Individual Income tax returns for tax year 2017 to the Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR). The OTR does not promote or endorse any particular online filing product. Approval by OTR only means that the vendor has met established software specifications.
The District of Columbia is requesting additional information this filing season in an effort to combat stolen-identity tax fraud and ensure that your hard-earned tax refund goes to you. Please provide the voluntary requested information from your driver's license or District of Columbia identification card. Your return will not be rejected if you do not have a driver's license or District of Columbia identification card, and providing the information could help process your return quicker.
