I got my tax info hacked a few years back. As a result, now every year I get a new IP PIN from the IRS that is used in order to do my taxes.
Through the post office I have that service that shows a scan of the envelops coming through so I get an image of the envelops before they arrive in my mailbox.
On Monday, I saw a scan from the IRS and I'm pretty sure that's for the IP pin. Today is Thursday and the letter hasn't arrived yet
Last year I waited and waited but never got the letter. There is supposedly a method to retrieve the PIN via an IRS web site. But from what I read, once a create IRS account is locked (which mine is
), there's no way to unlock.
Last year, I was able to call an IRS number, eventually reach a human who quizzed me to verify who I am and then get another letter sent with the PIN in the nick of time for my taxes. Hope I don't have to do that again.
The wait continues ...
