Course Description

Course Description

The Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) is a 6-digit number assigned to eligible taxpayers. It helps prevent identity thieves from filing fraudulent tax returns with stolen Social Security numbers (SSNs).

An IP PIN helps the IRS verify taxpayers’ identities and accept their electronic or paper tax returns for processing. The IRS issues IP PINs to confirmed identity theft victims once their cases are resolved. This process is unchanged. What is new is that any taxpayers who want an IP PIN, even if they are not victims of identity theft, may now obtain one.

The IP PIN is a valuable tool against tax-related identity theft. Here’s what you need to know before applying:

  • You must pass a rigorous identity verification process.
  • Spouses and dependents are eligible for an IP PIN if they can pass the identity proofing process.
  • An IP PIN is valid for a calendar year.
  • You must obtain a new IP PIN each year.
  • The IP PIN tool is unavailable from mid-November through mid-January each year.
  • Correct IP PINs must be entered on electronic and paper tax returns to avoid rejections and delays.

This online continuing professional education tax webinar will discuss the various aspects of Identity Protection Personal Identification Number.

Learning Objectives

  • To discuss the purpose of an IP PIN.
  • To identify circumstances when the IRS will automatically issue an IP PIN.
  • To identify the options to voluntarily opt-in to receive an IP PIN.
  • To analyze how to receive or retrieve your new IP PIN each year.
