I suspect NY wants driver license info electronically to make sure e-filers aren't someone other than the taxpayer they claim to be.?? If someone has to file on paper, NY can take their time checking everything and getting the refund to the taxpayer, so driver license info would be irrelevant.?? I suppose if someone really wanted, they could Xerox front and back of driver license and mail it to NY along with the paper tax return, but NY probably wouldn't worry about it anyway.

Paper Filing of NY return - no driver license information required Reply to Group Reply to Sender Apr 16, 2017 1:34 PM Evan Golar I had a situation last week where a MFJ return for NY resident client was e-file rejected due to an identity problem with one dependent child. Reprinted paper returns with both the Federal and NY attachments for why paper filed. Do the taxpayers escape the driver license requirement simply because of a paper filed return? (Driver license info is only transmitted electronically, doesn't appear on IT-201(3)) That seems to be an inequity in the NYS tax requirement. -- Evan S.
