"User ID or Password Invalid" when attempting to log into IRS FIRE system

Eric Updated by Eric


"User ID or Password Invalid" appears when attempting to login on the FIRE System Logon page.


Either the User ID or the password do not match IRS records.


  1. If you're certain your User ID is correct, use the Forgot Password link.
  2. If you've lost or are uncertain about your User ID, click Create New Account and start from scratch with a new User ID and be sure to input your company name correctly. See Creating an IRS FIRE account.
The new User ID needs to be at least 8 characters long, and include only letters and numbers.

How did we do?
