Tax Preparer Requirements

Tax Return Preparer Requirements

The IRS has undertaken several intiatives to reach tax return preparers with education and enforcement. All paid preparers must register with the IRS and obtain a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN).

Make sure you request your tax preparer to prove their credibility.

As a verified IRS E-File provider, it is our duty to inform you on what services you should be receiving.

For the preparer, the steps are as follows:

Access Your Account

If you already have an online PTIN account,login now.

2.Renew Your PTIN

Complete the online renewal application. You must verify your personal information and answer a few new questions. View a checklist of what you need before you get started.

3.Pay Your
Fee

Pay the $63.00 renewal fee via credit card or direct debit.

4.View Your
Next Steps

Review your next steps, including any testing and continuing education requirements. Remember to renew your PTIN each calendar year.

NOTE: The Registered Tax Return Preparer Competency Test is now available!
