Written on Oct 16, 2017

The IRS is hosting series of webinars to instruct e-Services users on the step-by-step process for registration via Secure Access authentications and some alternatives. Because of demand, the IRS will hold a second technical briefing for the tax practitioners unable to attend the first session set for Oct. 19 at 1:30 p.m. A second session is set for Oct. 24 at 3 p.m.

The IRS will conduct a step-by-step review of the process to successfully pass Secure Access authentication as well as review the exception process for those existing e-Services users unable to complete identity proofing online. The IRS also will explain an option of generating a security code via an upcoming feature on the IRS2Go app, which will provide an additional way to get a security code for ongoing use. IRS technical experts also will answer your questions.

All e-Services users will be required to register through Secure Access as early as the end of October or later as the IRS moves to better protect this sensitive tool and to meet information security standards.
