IRS News - IRS PTIN System is Now Open

21 Jun 2017 1:49 PM | Anonymous

On June 1, 2017, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia upheld the Internal Revenue Service’s authority to require the use of a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN), but enjoined the IRS from charging a user fee for the issuance and renewal of PTINs. As a result of this order, PTIN registration and renewal was suspended.

Breaking News: As of 8am ET this morning, the IRS will re-open the PTIN registration system. Tax Pros can apply for a PTIN at no charge.
