If you changed the contact number for the access code you need to pass identity verification questions.

If you can't verify with the options given you will not be able to access the online account.

Thank you.

Obviously, that is the whole problem. It makes no sense that a third party software company can submit my return without issue, but I can not. A simple solution would be for the helpline to be able to verify identities as well as the AI computer. This would solve the problem for a lot of people on this forum. Why can the helpline no longer verify people where the AI computer fails?

We can't advise why the process does not allow the helpine to verify.

Hi Team, I'm trying to verify my identity for my tax advisor by choosing P60/ Payslip and credit questions. After entering NI and address details, system was not able to verify my identity. I tried many times and after 5 attempts the PTA account is getting locked. Can you please help with the options. Thank You

Hi kenny123

If you are unable to verify with the options provided, you will not be able to access the online account.

There will be changes to the verification process in July, and you may be able to verify once these changes come into effect.
