It depends upon which PIN you are referring to.


The IRS discontinued the use of the e-filing PIN.  You will need to use your 2018 Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) instead.  See the following links for more information.


E-filing PIN


If you have an 6 digit PIN from the IRS, this is used to verify your identity if you have been a victim identity theft in the past.


5 digit PIN vs. IP PIN


If you need to obtain your 6-digit PIN from the IRS, you will need to contact them.
