Tax Season Reminder: Renew Your IP PIN

Last year, our tax accounting team told you Florida, Georgia and the District of Columbia started an IP PIN program ( If you signed up for this extra level of individual income tax return protection—or were required to participate in the program because you were an identity theft victim—the IRS will send you a new PIN number soon.

The IRS distributes new numbers each year to maintain your security. You must use your new IP PIN to file your 2014 individual tax return; last year’s number won’t work.

If you can’t access your application, contact the Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 1-800-908-4490 to receive a replacement IP PIN. A word of caution, though: this route will delay your tax return processing.
