The IRS uses your prior year AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) to help verify your identity when you e-file. They no longer accept electronic filing PINs.
You can find your prior year AGI on:
- Form 1040: line 37,
- Form 1040A: line 21, OR
- Form 1040-EZ: line 4.
Form 1040: line 37
Form 1040A: line 21
Form 1040-EZ: line 4
If this is your first time filing taxes, you can enter “0” (this field can’t be blank).
If you filed an amendment last year, use the AGI from your original tax return.
