January 23, 2023 | IRS Online Account Can Help Taxpayers Get Ready to File Their Tax Return

Updated: Jun 20, 2023

An IRS online account makes it easy for people to quickly get the tax planning information they need. With the same ease that taxpayers have when banking online or placing an online shopping order, they can log in and get the latest on their payment history, balance, and more. An IRS online account is a safe and easy way for individual taxpayers to view specific details about their federal tax account.

Taxpayers can view information about their account including:

  • Their payoff amount, which is updated for the current day

  • The balance for each tax year for which they owe taxes

  • Their payment history

  • Key information from their most current tax return as originally filed

  • Payment plan details if they have one

  • Digital copies of select IRS notices

  • Their address on file

With an online account, taxpayers can also:

  • Make a same day payment and estimated payments

  • Set up an online payment plan

  • Access tax records and transcripts

  • Authorize another person to represent them before the IRS or view their tax records

  • Approve and electronically sign Power of Attorney and Tax Information Authorization requests from their tax professional.

We recommend our clients create an account. You can set up your account using the following link:
