If you electronically filed (e-filed) your return last year, you may have created a Self-Select PIN to use as your electronic signature. If you didn't create a PIN last year or don't know your PIN, you can select to use your prior year AGI instead of your PIN.
What is my AGI?
Your AGI is the Adjusted Gross Income as shown on Form 1040 for the prior year. If you did not file a prior year return, enter $0 for the AGI amount. If you do not know your AGI, you can request a transcript from the IRS for the prior year AGI amount.
What if this is the first time I've filed?
If this is your first return that you have filed or if you did not file a return in the previous year, your prior year PIN will be left blank and your Prior Year AGI will be "$0".
When you use the same account (username) each year, the 5 digit PIN you created for your current return (signature) will automatically carry forward to your next year's return as the Prior Year PIN. Your Prior Year AGI will also carry forward.
