How Secure Messaging works

IRS Secure Messaging is similar to a web-based email service. Messages can be securely sent to you by IRS representatives and you may respond and include document attachments pertaining to your ACA BPD and IPF Fees.

The IRS will save all messages as a digital record of your communications with us. You'll be notified when you have a secure message waiting for you via a notification email to the address(s) provided on the signed consent.

The notification will include a link to your secure messaging center. In order to protect your privacy and reduce the potential for identity theft, we will send no personal information within the notification email.

Creating an account

If you've been invited to use Secure Messaging, you'll need the following information to register and use the service:

  • Consent form signed by an officer of the company.
  • Initial login name and password provided by an ACA analyst.
