I want encourage everyone to use this portal and keep your contact information updated.
It can be used for a number of the things including the following:
- Viewing your balance
- Viewing and creating payment plans
- Accessing tax records
- Managing communication preferences
- Viewing notices and letters
For 2022, one of the most significant uses of this portal will be for individuals to securely access their child tax credit payment amounts and/or to access their economic impact payment amounts.
The IRS will mail out forms 6419 and 6475 with this information but if you do not get the form in the mail this is another way to access the information.
