To enter, edit or delete a 6 digit IP PIN

  • Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
  • Click on Other Tax Situations
  • Scroll down to Other Return Info
  • On Identity Protection PIN, click the start button

Or enter ip pin in the Search box located in the upper right of the program screen. Click on Jump to ip pin

And you were answered with the information on how and where to enter the 6 digit IP PIN.

Is there a problem with entering the IP PIN as shown in the answer?

Yes ... the proper place to enter a 6 digit IP PIN is the only place it will work ... see the prior instructions.   You cannot enter it in the current year 5 digit self selected PIN section in the FILE tab.
