If you already transmitted your return, you will need to wait for the IRS to reject it.  Then you can add the IP pin and re-transmit.

There is a question in the "file" interview for IP pin, but it's small and out of the way.  A better way to find it is to click the tab for "Other tax situations."

If it's the 5-digit e-filing PIN, that number doesn't change from year to year unless you take physical action to change it. If you e-filed last year it was imported from last year's .tax2016 file.
If it's the 6-digit IP PIN, then in the search box at the top left enter IP PIN and take the "jump to" link when it appears.

If you already submitted the return, you can't change anything until it's rejected. If the 6-digit IP pin is required and you submitted without it, then just wait for it to be rejected. Then you can add the IP PIN and just re-submit it. Since the IRS doesn't start processing returns until Jan 29th, you may be waiting until then for the rejection.

Nobody. If you submitted your return without the IP PIN *and* it is required, all you can do is wait for the IRS to reject it. Now if you know somebody at the IRS you can always call them. But as it stands now, you wait.
Understand that I don't care how soon you submit your return, the IRS has made it clear that they are not processing any returns before Jan 29th. So submitting today, and even if your return shows an "accepted" status today, you are not getting your refund any faster than I will when I submit my return on Jan 29th. Just because the IRS may have accepted your return before Jan 29th, does not mean they're processing it.

Please read this TurboTax faq article.  I hope it helps! 

If you have already submitted your return, you would have to wait for IRS to reject it to re-open the return.
