We just got our verification letters today. When we went to the website for the quiz, we found some of the most arcane questions we've ever seen. Far harder to answer than any question on the credit bureau tests.
One of them required knowledge of an obscure three word phrase in the middle of our home's legal deed description, which runs to a page and a half of single spaced type. If I didn't have a good memory, and I wasn't the type of person who actually reads such things, I never would have passed.
Very impressive work from the Ohio tax department!
