IRS Shuts down E-File PIN program in response to cyberattacks

Posted in addnew

The IRS had a program to provide certain taxpayers who were victims of IRS identify theft a six (6) digit PIN to authenticate their identity on e-filed returns. However, after having their system hacked in February and more than 100,000 PINS stolen the Service is shutting the program down due to continued cyberattacks. The IRS news release seems to imply the shutdown is permanent.
