Register Your Own IRS Account

I already had an EFTPS account for tax payments, but this is separate. I am a little spooked that the answers to all my identity verification questions were “none of the above.” In order to actually download your records, you have to turn off Safari’s pop-up blocker.

Nathaniel Irons:

One unexpected consequence of signing up for an IRS account: “Note: All future correspondence will be via email.” Yikes.
