Important! IRS Delays e-Services Re-Registration

October 18, 2016

To ensure a smooth transition, the IRS has decided to delay the October 24 date for requiring e-services users to re-register and validate their identities through Secure Access authentication.

In the next few weeks, the IRS plans to have discussions with key stakeholders affected by the e-services changes to discuss security protocols and next steps in this process.

A new implementation date has not been set. When a new date is set, the IRS will share the information widely with e-Services users.

The IRS is strengthening the e-Services registration process as part of a wider effort to ensure the protection of taxpayer data and IRS systems.
