You must get your Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). ID.me does not process or handle IP PIN requests. As a technology provider, ID.me only provides identity verification for IRS applications.
Get your IP PIN
To get your IP PIN from the IRS:
- Go to the IRS IP PIN page.
- Select Get an IP PIN.
- Sign in to your ID.me account. If you haven’t verified, you can verify for the IRS using Self-Service or with an ID.me Video Chat Agent. If you’re unable to verify your identity with ID.me, there are alternative options to access this information.
- After you are signed in, select Continue.
- Your IP PIN will be located at the top of the screen
Don't share your IP PIN with anyone other than your tax preparer.
