DENVER (AP) - The state’s efforts against identity theft could delay how long it takes Colorado taxpayers to receive their refunds this year.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1nBBLrB ) that the state Department of Revenue says this year’s focus on fraud detection and prevention could delay refunds by up to two months.

Officials say only refunds linked to filings that show signs of fraud will be impacted.

They also say some taxpayers could be contacted by the revenue department to verify their income tax information or an income tax refund.
