You may want to

  • Keep your CAF number in a safe place for future reference.

Answers to Common Questions

Q. What is a CAF number?

A. A CAF number is a unique nine-digit identification number that we assign to you the first time you file a third party authorization with the IRS. We send a CP547 notice to you informing you of your assigned number. Use your assigned number on all future authorizations.

Q. What should I do if I don’t remember my CAF number?

A. If you’re a tax professional and can’t remember your CAF number, you can call the Practitioner Priority Services (PPS) at 1-866-860-4259. Once you provide your authenticating information, they can verbally give your CAF to you over the phone. If PPS is unable to authenticate you as the owner of the CAF number, they will mail the number to the CAF address of record.
