My wife was given a pin, but turbotax didnt ask for it.

A 6-digit PIN is an Identity Protection PIN (also called an IP PIN) that the IRS provides for victims of ID theft whose cases they are working with.  That is entered in a completely different program area--not in the efile section.

The regular Efiling PIN is 5 digits and will be encountered during the process of efiling.

If you have a 6-digit IP PIN to enter, here's where to enter it.

·         FEDERAL TAXES tab. (or Personal tab in Home and Business)

·         Then sub tab "Other Tax Situations."

·         Scroll down to "Other Return Info".

·         Find subtopic "Identity Protection PIN", and click START.
