Can I still get audited if I use an IP Pin or is it like a safe pass by?

The IP PIN only verifies your identity, and is only offered to taxpayers who have previously been victims of identity theft. It has nothing to do with the accuracy of your reported income and deductions.  You can still be audited randomly, or if the IRS has reason to think you did not report all your income or claimed incorrect deductions or credits.
