IRS Sends Corrected Letter for Identity Protection (IP) Pin

by in Newsletter on Jan. 18, 2016

The IRS has begun mailing follow-up letters to taxpayers noting that the Identity Protection (IP) PIN they received in a prior mailing is valid despite the incorrect reference to the year. Please be aware the IP PIN listed on the CP 01A notice dated Jan. 4, 2016, is valid for use on individual tax returns filed in 2016. The earlier notice incorrectly indicates the IP PIN issued is to be used for filing the 2014 tax return when it should be used for the 2015 tax return.
