Earlier this month, the IRS announced a new IRS e-Services initiative referred to as “Secure Access”. We blogged about this initiative here.
On the 14th, the IRS sent out the following update:
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.
Stay tuned! We will update this post once the IRS releases a new date.
