If you do not have your information when you file your extension, you may check the Did not provide ID box. However, when you subsequently e-ﬁle your return, you must include your driver license or non-driver ID information.
It might be helpful to know that your driver's license number is actually not required to file your federal taxes, nor is it required to file your State tax return in most states. If your State issued ID or driver's license is not being accepted, you can leave the driver's license/state ID information blank, and still file your return.
@Suzan7065 You should be able to e-file your federal return without having to enter a drivers license or state ID; but IL is fussy about identification and you will not be able to e-file a state of IL tax return without an ID. You will have to print, sign and mail an IL tax return.
To verify their identity with ID.me, taxpayers need to provide a photo of an identity document such as a driver's license, state ID or passport. They'll also need to take a selfie with a smartphone or a computer with a webcam. Once their identity has been verified, they can securely access IRS online services.
"REAL ID" refers to a federal law called the REAL ID Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109-13, 119 Stat. 231). Congress passed the REAL ID Act in response to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 as part of an effort to prevent future acts of terrorism. The REAL ID Act established federal security, authentication and issuance standards for state driver's licenses and identification (ID) cards and addressed various immigration issues pertaining to terrorism and border control.
The REAL ID Act is extensive and detailed. This website contains only a brief overview of some of the provisions applicable to the issuance of REAL ID-compliant driver's license and ID cards. Here is a link to the full legislation: www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/real-id-act-text.pdf.
The REAL ID Act promotes security in the issuance of driver's licenses and ID cards, and deters identity theft and fraud by requiring states to meet certain physical and procedural security standards for production and issuance of driver's licenses and ID cards, as well as certain documentation standards for applicants, including authentication and verification standards for proof of identity, date of birth, Social Security number, residence, and lawful presence in the U.S.
Starting on May 7, 2025, Iowans will need to present a REAL ID-marked card or another TSA-approved document to fly commercially or for federal official purposes. If your driver's license or ID card will expire before that date, you can just wait until it is time to renew your driver's license or ID card to get a REAL ID. If your driver's license or ID card will expire after May 7, 2025, you can come in at any time before or after May 7, 2025, and apply for a REAL ID. A REAL ID driver's license or ID card is not mandatory, and some people may find they do not need one. We encourage you to review the REAL ID FAQs to decide whether and when you need a REAL ID-marked card. To get a REAL ID, you will need to make an appointment to go to an Iowa driver's license service center and present physical copies of specific documents that prove your identity and residency. Please note it can take up to 21 days to receive your REAL ID in the mail, so please plan ahead.
New applicants - New applicants are already required to bring all the required documents needed to qualify for a REAL ID-marked card. If you are new to Iowa or are newly returned to the state and you successfully complete the requirements for an Iowa driver's license or ID card, you will be issued a REAL ID-marked card.
Current driver's license or ID card holders - If you currently hold a driver's license or ID card that is not marked as REAL ID-compliant (gold star), you can decide whether you want to apply for a REAL ID-marked card. If you will use your card for federal official purposes (i.e., boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft, accessing federal facilities that require identification to enter, or entering nuclear power plants), then you may want to apply for a REAL ID-marked card.
Already have an Iowa driver's license or ID card with a REAL ID star? Then there is nothing more to do. You can continue to renew your driver's license or ID card as usual, and it will continue to be marked with a REAL ID star.
Regardless of whetheryou are a new applicant or current card holder, you must bring the same typesof documents to get a REAL ID-marked card. You will need to makean appointment to go to an Iowa driver's license servicecenter.
If you need to corrector update information at the SSA, do so several days before you apply for adriver's license or ID card. For information on how to do this, visit www.ssa.gov. Your SSN will not be listed on your driver'slicense or ID card. The Iowa DOT will assign you a unique driver's license orID number.
If your judgment is for an automobile accident on a California highway and the Judgment Debtor fails to pay, you can ask the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to suspend their California driver license.
If your judgment is $1,000 or less and has remained unpaid for 90 days after the judgment became final, the DMV can suspend the license up to 90 days. This only applies to the actual driver of the vehicle and not the registered owner.
If the judgment is more than $1,000 and has remained unpaid, you must wait 30 days after the judgment became final. The DMV can suspend the license of both the driver and registered owner for up to six years. Some exceptions may apply. Speak to a Small Claims Advisor for details.
Some states issue driver's licenses for particular transmissions only. Drivers with an automatic-approved license are not able to drive manual-transmission vehicles, whereas manual-approved drivers are able to operate both. States such as South Australia have no such differentiation, and can drive both regardless of which they learnt with.
Provisional drivers need to comply with all road rules and traffic laws and other restrictions: eg., the speed limit is 100 km/h, The Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) must be a zero, provisional drivers are not permitted to use a mobile phone in any form whilst driving, including hands-free devices and texting. Accumulating five or more demerit points within a 12-month period will trigger action against a provisional driver.
Drivers who obtain a P1 provisional licence on or after 4 September 2010 must not drive a high-powered vehicle if they are under the age of 25. High powered includes vehicles with engines of eight or more cylinders,vehicles with turbocharged or supercharged engines (excluding diesel powered vehicles), vehicles that have been modified to increase engine performance, nominated high-performance vehicles, and vehicles that are over a certain power-to-weight ratio. High-powered vehicle restrictions do not apply to drivers over 25 years of age. P plates of any kind are not displayed when on the P2 licence, and it is illegal to display P2 plates from other states.
Note: Drivers on their provisional or learners license follow their own state's imposed limits while driving in other states. While driving on a SA license in states with a provisional and learner license imposed maximum speed limit less than 100 km/h, drivers are able to still drive at 100 km/h, while local P and L platers are subject to their own state's restrictions, such as 90 km/h in New South Wales. This means that South Australian provisional or learner drivers may be pulled over more frequently than local drivers.
The minimum driving age in Victoria is 18 years. A learner can drive at the age of 16 under the supervision of a fully licensed driver since 1966. After obtaining a licence, a driver continues to be subject to restrictions during a 4-year probationary period.
Probationary drivers must drive with a zero BAC, and are not permitted to drive 'high powered vehicles' (formerly those powered at more than 125 kW/tonne or 3.5 litres/tonne; now all petrol turbocharged and supercharged cars and any car of more than 6 cylinders, refer below). If the driver was tested in an automatic vehicle, the driver will have an "A" condition applied to their licence and are not permitted to drive a manual transmission vehicle during the probationary period. The "A" condition can be lifted anytime during the probationary period(s) by taking the practical drive test in a manual transmission vehicle.
The same P1 restrictions apply, except P2 drivers may tow trailers. As of 25 November 2013, P2 drivers must not use a mobile phone while driving, including hands-free phones. The peer passenger restriction does not apply to P2 drivers. They must display the white-on-green 'P-plates', rather than the red. If a person is over 21 when licensed they go straight onto the P2 licence for three years.
The driving age in Western Australia is 17 years. A learner can drive at the age of 16 under the supervision of a fully licensed driver. After obtaining a licence, a driver continues to be subject to restrictions during a 2-year probationary period.
Interstate visitors on their L or P plates must follow the license conditions set of their home state rather than conditions placed upon license-holders of the state which they are visiting i.e, a driver holding an SA provisional license who is visiting New South Wales is able to legally drive at 100 km/h, whereas a NSW provisional driver is restricted to 90 km/h. 2b1af7f3a8
