To E-file your tax return you must verify your identity with your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) from your prior year tax return. If you don't have this information from your prior year return, you will need to use your prior-year adjusted gross income (AGI) to validate your signature. If you do not have your prior-year tax return, you may visit the IRS website and use the Get Transcript Online or Get Transcript by Mail tool to obtain your prior-year AGI. You may use the AGI to validate your signature and continue e-filing your return.
The latest IRS updates indicate they will no longer be accepting prior year PIN as an acceptable form of electronic signature. Additionally, the IRS E-file Pin tool is no longer available. The only way to gather this information is from the prior year AGI amount.
NOTE: If you did not have a return processed and accepted by the end of the filing deadline for the prior year, you can still e-file the return. You will answer NO that you did not file a return last year and we will automatically enter $0 as the Adjusted Gross Income so you can continue with e-filing your return.
