Get Your Electronic Filing PIN



The Electronic Filing PIN service will not be available until electronic filing resumes in mid-January 2016.

To e-file your 2015 tax return or other electronic forms, you must verify your identity with your Self-Select PIN or your Adjusted Gross Income from your 2014 tax return. If you don't have either, you can get an Electronic Filing PIN.
