Some taxpayers asked to take quiz to get refunds

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Some people waiting for state tax refunds need to take an extra step to get them.

The state has letters in the mail, asking some taxpayers due refunds to take an identity verification quiz.

The quiz involves answering personal questions on the Louisiana Department of Revenue's website.

It takes about five to ten business days for a taxpayer to receive a refund, after passing the quiz.

The Department of Revenue says it put together the quiz to help protect the identities of taxpayers.
