If you received e-file reject code IND-181-01, it's because your 2021 IP PIN was missing from your return.
To resolve this, start by finding your 6-digit IP PIN:
- This will be on the CP01A letter you received in December or January for your 2021 taxes. IP PINs for prior tax years won't work.
- If you lost your letter or never received one, retrieve your IP PIN online at the IRS site Get an IP PIN.
- If you're unable to retrieve your IP PIN online, you can have it reissued (allow up to 21 days).
Once you have retrieved your PIN, select your version of TurboTax below for instructions:
Note: Because your IP PIN is issued by the IRS, for your protection, TurboTax does not have access to your IP PIN.
