What is an Identity Protection Pin?

An Identity Protection Pin is a six-digit number assigned by the IRS to eligible taxpayers. This helps prevent the misuse of your Social Security number on fraudulent federal income tax returns. If you have already received an Identity Protection Pin, you must enter this on the Sign Return page. A new IP Pin is assigned every year. Be sure to enter your current IP Pin.
If you do not have an Identity Protection Pin and would like to receive one, you must request this through the IRS.
