FYI: Update on IRS e-Services and Secure Access (Delay of Oct 24th date...)

Hello Everyone,


I just received the below message and have been asked to share it:


To ensure a smooth transition, the IRS has decided to delay the October 24 date for requiring e-services users to re-register and validate their identities through Secure Access authentication.


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.
