New selfie system may help you receive your Alabama tax refund sooner
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
A new app called Alabama EID can help you secure your refund quicker and protect you against theft.
It's becoming increasingly common for people to file their income taxes only to find out some crook has already filed for their refund.
State officials started working on the app last tax season.
Once you've registered, if a tax return is ever filed in your name, you'll receive a notification through the app that will ask you to either confirm or deny the filing.
The app is free and available in both the apple store and google play.
