US IRS Reminds Tax Preparers To Renew PTIN

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

27 October 2017


The United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has reminded tax return preparers that they must renew their Preparer Tax Identification Numbers (PTINs) for 2018.

Anyone who prepares or helps prepare any federal tax return, or any claim for a tax refund, must have a valid PTIN from the IRS.

According to the IRS, more than 727,000 tax return preparers must renew their PTIN by 2018.

The PTIN is used as the identifying number on prepared tax returns, and a failure to use a valid number can result in penalties.

There is no fee for registering or renewing, and the process can be done online.

All enrolled agents, regardless of whether they prepare returns, must have a PTIN in order to maintain their status, and all current PTINs will expire on December 31, 2017.
