All taxpayers now eligible for Identity Protection PIN.

Beginning in 2021, the IRS Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN) Opt-In Program has been expanded to all taxpayers who can properly verify their identity. An IP PIN helps prevent your social security number from being used to file a fraudulent federal income tax return. You can use the Get An IP PIN tool on to request an IP PIN, file Form 15227 if your income is $72,000 or less or make an appointment to visit a Taxpayer Assistance Center.
