TAS Tax Tip: Create an Online Account to view your balances, make payments, get transcripts, and more.

Setting up an online account with the IRS has never been easier! To help get you started, be sure to have your photo identification handy to verify your identity.

With online account access, you can view:

  • The total amount you owe, including balance details by year;
  • Your payment history and any scheduled or pending payments
  • Key information from your most recent tax return;
  • Payment plan details, if you have one;
  • Digital copies of select notices from the IRS;
  • Your Economic Impact Payments, if any;
  • Your address on file; and
  • Authorization requests from tax professionals.

You can also:

  • Make a payment online;
  • See payment plan options and request a plan via Online Payment Agreement;
  • Access your tax records via Get Transcript; and
  • Approve or reject authorization requests from tax professionals.

Please note that your account balance will update only once every 24 hours, usually overnight, and check/money order payments may take up to three weeks to appear on your account.

The IRS now requires individuals to have an account with ID.me to access their online account. ID.me is a service created, maintained, and secured by a private technology provider. If you do not have an ID.me account, you must create a new account using Your Online Account at IRS.gov.
