Identity Theft Victims May Opt into IRS Program

April 27, 2015

In an effort to help victims of identity theft, the IRS has issued approximately 1.5 million six-digit Identity Protection PINs (IP PINs) for taxpayers to use in filing their federal tax return. The IP PIN is a unique number that is assigned annually to victims of identity theft with resolved cases. The IP PIN is intended to help these individuals avoid delays in filing returns and receiving refunds. The IRS is continuing the program, which was piloted last year in Florida, Georgia, and the District of Columbia. In addition, the IRS is offering the program to approximately 1.7 million taxpayers for whom the IRS suspects identity theft on their accounts. For more information on combating identity theft, see http://www.irs.gov/ (search for identity theft).
