Yes $18000 refund. It is almost all our ACA premium subsidy as my husband is self-employed. We don't know in advance what his income will be, so we pay the ACA premiums upfront and settle up when we file our taxes. For 2019 it was $18000. The hackers got the first stimulus payment as well since the IRS thought the bank account they used for the stolen refund was a good one.

As far as the PIN numbers go, I am more concerned about a repeat of what happened this year. Our return was intercepted by the hackers after our accountant pressed submit and before it got to the IRS. If the accountant includes the PIN numbers on the electronic return and it is intercepted again I don't see how the PIN numbers help.

Because either (a) the return that your accountant filed with your PIN will get to the IRS before the scammers can file one for the same tax year with the same PIN and/or (b) you get a new PIN each year in the mail - the scammers are not helped in filing a fraudulent 2020 return by knowing your 2019 PIN because the PINs are different.
