Get An Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN)
An Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN) is a six-digit number that prevents a fraudulent entity or individual from filing a Federal Individual Income Tax Return using your Social Security number. The IP PIN is known only to you, your tax preparer, and the IRS and helps the IRS validate your identity when you file your electronic or paper tax return. All taxpayers are eligible for this free protection once you verify your identity to the IRS with a few credit information questions.
MPO & Co. highly recommends our clients to use this free service provided by the IRS to protect themselves against fraud.
