If you have lost or forgotten the IP PIN, there are two ways that IRS provide to retrieve the lost IP PIN. The first method is to visit IRS Get an IP PIN online web tool to retrieve your current IP PIN. There, you will have to register ( if not registered earlier )  and verify your identity in order to use the tool. If you are already registered with the Get an IP Pin tool or registered  for any of the following services, you can use those credentials to log in

Information to Keep Handy while Registering with IRS for IP PIN

You need to keep the following information ready for registering any online services on the IRS website.

    • Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN)
    • Tax filing status and mailing address
    • One financial account number linked to your name:
      • Credit card – last 8 digits (no American Express, debit or corporate cards) or
      • Student loan – (Enter the student loan account number provided on your statement. The account number may contain both numbers and letters. Do not include any symbols.) Additionally, we can’t verify student loans issued by Nelnet. or
      • Mortgage or home equity loan or
      • Home equity line of credit (HELOC) or
      • Auto loan

Other ways to get  IP PIN reissued

Other than IP PIN online tool, IRS also provides telephone service for retrieving the lost IP PIN. Call IRS at 800-908-4490, Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. your local time.

You may generally get your IP PIN within 21 days of successful telephone verification


Any other way to get an IP PIN??

If for any reason, you cannot access the Get an IP PIN online tool or retrieve using a Phone Call to IRS, you can still get an IP PIN by filing your tax return by paper without your IP PIN.

You’ll need to complete and mail a paper tax return without your IP PIN. IRS will review your return to confirm it’s yours but this may delay any refund you’re due.
