IRS Pin Protection in 2021
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced this week that in January 2021 taxpayers can apply for an Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN).

IP PINs are currently only issued to those who fill out an ID theft affidavit or taxpayers who’ve experienced tax refund fraud in the past.
