How do I get my 5-digit Electronic Filing PIN?

On June 23, the IRS announced that the 5-digit Electronic Filing PIN has been discontinued. Read the IRS statement. This decision does not affect the 6-digit Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN).

Because you won't be able to get a 5-digit e-filing PIN to verify your identity when e-filing, you should use last year's AGI (adjusted gross income) for verification purposes. If you didn't file a return last year, enter 0 as your AGI.

We're in the process of reviewing all references to the 5-digit e-filing PIN in TurboTax for later removal.
