Yes, you do. Per IRS, Taxpayers who receive an IP PIN must use it on electronic and paper returns in order for the returns to be accepted for processing. For additional information, click IRS Statement on IP PIN | Internal Revenue Service

If you know you need an IP PIN to file your taxes and you lost your CP01A letter (or never received it), you can:

  • Retrieve your IP PIN online at the IRS's Get an IP PIN site; or
  • Call the IRS at 1-800-908-4490 to have your IP PIN mailed to you. However, this can take up to 21 days.

TurboTax is not able to issue IP PINs and you won't find them on your tax paperwork. You can only get IP PINs from the IRS.

The IP PIN is sent to you by mail. Did you lose the letter from the IRS ?

Must have. Went on their website to retrieve it or get another and their site has been down for days. What do I do to get one?  I have my mail in return ready to go.
