How to Verify Your Identity When Calling the IRS When calling the IRS, you can expect them to verify your identity before delving into personal information. Here’s what you’ll need to verify your identity:

  • Social Security number.

  • Birthdate.

  • An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number if you have one instead of your SSN.

  • Your filing status.

  • Your prior tax return. You may need information from your prior year’s return to answer certain questions.

  • A copy of the tax return you’re calling about.

  • Any letters or notices you’ve received from the IRS.

Having all this information handy before you call the IRS will make the process faster because IRS phone operators will only speak with the taxpayer or a legally designated representative.

* This information is not intended to be a substitute for specific, individualized tax advice. We suggest that you discuss your specific tax issues with a qualified tax professional.

How to Get the Recommended 10,000 Steps a Day

Getting 10,000 steps in throughout the day (or moving at all!) might sound like an impossible goal, but there are a few small tweaks you can make throughout your day to get those feet moving. Here are a few ideas:

  • When running errands, park your car further away and walk from there.

  • Create a “loop” in your hours that you can walk in between meetings or when you need to get up from your desk. Your loop could even be around the kitchen island!

  • Walk in place while watching TV.

  • Listen to a great podcast or audiobook while you walk. It will make the time go by faster!
