Pilot Program Begins for Taxpayers Living In Florida, Georgia, and the District Of Columbia

Applying for this PIN number, is very simple.  It is all done online.  The website is .  This morning I applied for my own PIN number, and I couldn’t have been simpler.  Without this PIN, I will be unable to file my tax return this year.  This is a game changer in the identity theft epidemic that has swept the Internal Revenue Service.  Currently I have eight clients that are fighting identity theft issues with the IRS.

You should get a PIN number, if you live in the states, or the District of Columbia.  Better safe than sorry.
