Get Your Electronic Filing PIN


To e-file your 2013 tax return or other electronic forms, you must verify your identity with your Self-Select PIN or your Adjusted Gross Income from your 2012 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 2012 Form 1040, Form 1040A, Form 1040-EZ or Form 1040-SS (PR), and
  • Your return was processed by November 23, 2013.



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 2012 tax return.

Get your Electronic Filing PIN!




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.
