What is an Identity Protection PIN?

An Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN) is a six-digit number that prevents someone else from filing a tax return using your Social Security number. The IP PIN is known only to you and the IRS and helps verify your identity when you file your electronic or paper tax return. https://www.irs.gov/identity-theft-fraud-scams/get-an-identity-protection-pin
