Did you use the "Get an IP PIN" online tool? That has been down for at least 6 weeks.

This service will be unavailable due to system maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience. If more information is available, you can find it by selecting the service from the Tools page.
The IRS FAQ (https://www.irs.gov/identity-theft-frau ... ip-pin#q15 says:
Q15: When does the IRS send IP PIN notices to taxpayers?

A15: We send the CP01A notice in early January to taxpayers eligible to receive an IP PIN.
I applied for and got one for 2018. I wonder if I am an "eligible taxpayer" or do I have to re-apply?
