The Wisconsin Department of Revenue recently mailed identity verification (PIN) and grant denial letters to individuals and businesses related to the Wisconsin Tomorrow Small Business Recovery Grant. Many who received these letters did not apply for the grant, making it likely those applications were submitted fraudulently by ID thieves.
For reference, attached are examples of the letters DOR has sent:
We understand citizens receiving these letters are contacting local law enforcement agencies to report identity theft. Please refer to the Wisconsin Tomorrow Small Business Recovery Grant link for additional information related to the grant program and resources available for victims of ID theft.
The citizen, or their authorized representative, may make a request for a copy of the fraudulent grant application by contacting DOR customer service at (608) 266-2772.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach us at (608) 266-2772. We appreciate your assistance with this important issue.
