Get Your Electronic Filing PIN


The Electronic Filing PIN service will not be available until electronic filing resumes mid-January 2015.


To e-file your 2014 tax return or other electronic forms, you must verify your identity with your Self-Select PIN or your Adjusted Gross Income from your 2013 tax return. If you don't have either of these, you can get an Electronic Filing PIN.


Step 1   Step 2   Step 3

Determine your eligibility...


  • You filed a 2013 Form 1040, Form 1040A, Form 1040-EZ or Form 1040-SS (PR), and
  • Your return was processed by Nov. 23, 2014.



Gather your information...


  • Social Security Number (SSN) or Individuals Tax Identification Number (TIN)
  • First and last name
  • Date of birth
  • Filing status, and 
  • Complete mailing address as it appeared on your 2013 tax return.

Using Your Electronic Filing PIN

When you are ready to file your return, enter your Electronic Filing PIN in the "Electronic Filing PIN" field. The Electronic Filing PIN is a temporary PIN we use to verify your identity when you e-file. Keep a copy of your signed tax return for your records.
