Year-End Tax Reminder: IP PIN Letters Coming in January

As we approach the end of the year, I wanted to take a moment to remind you about an important matter regarding your taxes. If you have an IRS Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN), it’s crucial to be on the lookout for a letter from the IRS in January.

The IRS issues IP PINs to help protect your identity and prevent fraudulent tax returns. This unique six-digit number adds an extra layer of security to your tax filings. When you receive your IP PIN letter in January, please keep it in a safe place, as you’ll need it give it to us with your other tax documents.

Here are a few key points to keep in mind:

Watch Your Mail: Keep an eye on your mailbox for any correspondence from the IRS. The letter will contain your IP PIN and instructions on how to use it.

Protect Your IP PIN: Treat your IP PIN like a valuable document. Do not share it with anyone except your trusted tax professional.

Store Your PIN Safely: When your letter arrives store the letter with your other tax documents. This will ensure it is there when you are ready for the tax-filing process.

Reissue Your IP PIN: If your letter does not arrive by February 1, you will need to ask the IRS to reissue your PIN. You can call the IRS at 800-908-4490 Monday to Friday or go online at
