    I'm also wondering about this. The IRS website pin doesn't match what Turbo Tax imported automatically.  How should that be handled?
    • If you go to the IRS website and request a pin It basically generates a new number. So erase the old one that turbo tax has stored and re-enter the new one. Thats what I did. My return was already approved.
    • the signature pin or the 8 digit pin? I am wondering on the signature pin mine was rejected because of the 8 digit pin but now that I resent is I am wondering if the 5 digit signature pin is the same or different?
    • motswana this does not work for me. It will not give me a new pin. I was told by IRS to just enter a 0 and then at the final step it requires my 5 digit signature ID
    • I think I put in the wrong number, where it asks for oin, and it also asked for another number if you do not have pin, was that AGI, or was it refund amt from last year??
    • It will not give me a new pin. I was told by IRS to just enter a 0 and then at the final step it requires my 5 digit signature ID.  I cannot even request a new pin!!!!   heelllllllp!!
    • I thought turbotax supposed to be easy
    • so did i!  I'm supposed to get a refund from CA when i shouldn't.

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
