The IRS and the Security Summit partners remind you that another way to help protect sensitive information from identity thieves is with secure online tools such as Tax Pro Account.

Tax Pro Account is a secure, mobile-friendly, digital self-service that enables you to act on a taxpayer’s behalf, view their information and manage their authorizations more efficiently.

You can use Tax Pro Account to send Power of Attorney and Tax Information Authorization requests directly to a taxpayer’s individual IRS Online Account. Once the taxpayer approves the request, it’s processed in real time.

For details about E-Services, Tax Pro Account, EINs, filing, forms, third party authorizations and other safe and secure online tools to serve your clients, see the Tax Professionals page on
