The Internal Revenue Service announced that the “Get an IP PIN” tool has returned to IRS.gov with a stronger authentication process to help protect taxpayers.
The Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) is given to taxpayers who are confirmed identity theft victims and to certain taxpayers who opt into the program. The six-digit IP PIN adds an additional layer of protection for the Social Security number.
The re-launched tool uses a multi-factor authentication process that will help prevent automated attacks.
