CP01A is not the IP PIN.  CP01A is the type of IRS letter, which may have provided your IP PIN.  Read the whole letter.

 

An IP PIN is a 6-digit PIN provided by the IRS to certain victims of ID theft.  It consists only of numeric digits.   Did you get a CP01A letter from the IRS containing an IP PIN?

 

If so, here's a way to enter the 6-digit IP PIN into your return:

 

  • Log in and open your return ("Take me to my return.")
  • In the left menu column, click Federal.
  • Then at the top Other Tax Situations
  • Scroll down to Other Return Info.
  • Choose Identity Protection PIN and Start (or Revisit.)
  • Next screen asks:  "Did you get an IP PIN from the IRS for this year's taxes?"
  • If you choose "yes", it will have you enter it.
