As of Dec. 10, all tax professionals and payers who wish to use e-Services must create an e-Services account using a more rigorous identity proofing process called Secure Access Authentication.
Any e-Services user who has not previously created a Secure Access account through Get Transcript Online, IP PIN tool, View Balance or by exception processing in recent days must validate their identity through this more rigorous process. This also includes all TIN Matching users and users who received Letter 5903 last December and authenticated by telephone.
This new process is not optional on the part of the IRS or its online users. The change is being made to meet federal information system standards.
