Where can I find the PIN I used to electronically sign my tax return last year?

if you used turbotax last time, it is holding the 5 -digit PIN for you. sorry I can't tell you the exact sequence to retrieve it.
if you choose PIN over AGI, it may pop up
I always write my PIN down and put it away in my desk

Most taxpayers don't need an an IP PIN — the IRS only issues them in select cases. More info

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.

We are unable to issue IP PINs and you won't find them on your tax paperwork. You can only get IP PINs from the IRS.

I had in mind a 5-digit number that I used to electronically sign my return last year. Where can I find this 5-digit number?
