Welcome to Registration Services

Registration
Here you can register to become a user of the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) e-services web site. Our registration process involves collecting personal and taxpayer data for the sole purpose of authenticating your identity. The IRS will compare the information you provide with the information received from the Social Security Administration (SSA) and with the tax return information you previously filed. We will issue a registration confirmation code to you via the U.S. Postal Service, if the information you provide matches our data. You must log back into the e-services web site within 28 days of your registration submission and enter this confirmation code to complete the registration process.

We ask you to provide the following information to become a registered user:

  • Legal name (verified with IRS & SSA records)
  • Social Security Number (verified with SSA records)
  • Date of birth (verified with SSA records)
  • Telephone number
  • E-mail address
  • Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) from either your current year or prior year filed tax return (verified from IRS records)
  • Username. Select your preferred username. Please read the rules for selecting your username
  • Password and PIN. Select your password and PIN. Please read the helpful hints on selecting a secure, unique password and PIN
  • Reminder question to recover a forgotten username
  • Home mailing address (verified from IRS records). If you have moved since you last transacted with the IRS, please update your information when registering.

Please have this information available before you continue on to the registration process. Thank you.

Expired, Forgotten or Lost Password or PIN
