Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) Requirement

posted Dec 1, 2011, 5:38 PM by John Hicks
New regulations require all paid tax return preparers (including attorneys, CPAs, and enrolled agents) to apply for a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) even if they already have one before preparing any federal tax returns in Tax Year 2011. PTINs that were obtained for the Tax Year 2010 season will expire on December 31, 2011. Some preparers will also soon need to pass a competency test and take continuing education courses.

Promero Consulting complies with the IRS PTIN requirement for the 2012 Tax Season.
