  • Once the return is open click in the top right corner on SEARCH.
  • Enter IP PIN without quotes then click the magnifying glass--do not use the dropdown menu, or it might not display the "Jump.".
  • Choose Jump to IP PIN.
  • Next screen asks:  "Did you get an IP PIN from the IRS for this year's taxes?"
