IRS Notice CP01A – Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN)

Taxpayers given an identity protection personal identification number receive a CP01A notice from the IRS (IP PIN). This 6-digit PIN secures your tax account from any fraud.

Why Did I Receive a CP01A Notification from the IRS?

Taxpayers who have submitted Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit, and are victims of identity theft receive IRS Notification CP01A. Your new IP PIN and usage guidelines will be included in the notification.

What You can do?

Make sure to safeguard your IP PIN and keep your CP01A notice safely stored with your tax records. Keep it private as you don’t have to share and only give it to your tax preparer.

Keep in mind the following details regarding your IP PIN:

  • Only your federal income tax returns are eligible for it.
  • It will be rejected if you submit your return e-filing without including it.
  • You will get a fresh IP PIN mailed to you in December or January of every year.

For instructions on how to retrieve your special 6-digit PIN if you lose your IP PIN, go to Retrieve Your Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN).
