    (Information contained in U.S. Internal Revenue Service [IRS] press release: January 12, 2021) Washington - - The Internal Revenue Service today expanded the Identity Protection PIN Opt-In Program to all taxpayers who can verify their identities.

"This is a way to, in essence, lock your tax account, and the IP PIN serves as the key to opening that account," said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. "Electronic returns that do not contain the correct IP PIN will be rejected, and paper returns will go through additional scrutiny for fraud." The IRS launched the IP PIN program nearly a decade ago to protect confirmed identity thef

    Washington - - The Internal Revenue Service today urged people to visit IRS.gov for the most current information on the second round of Economic Impact Payments rather than calling the agency or their financial institutions or tax software providers.

    Treasury, IRS provide Relief for those developing Renewable Energy Projects Offshore or on Federal Land | site |




    (Information contained in U.S. Internal Revenue Service [IRS] press release dated: December 31, 2020)

To address this hurdle, the Treasury Department and the IRS have determined that it is necessary to extend the safe harbor period to up to 10 calendar years after the year in...
