IRS Set to Implement New Process for Tax Preparers


By the middle of next month, the IRS will begin implementation of a new online application process for paid tax preparers. Under this new process, all individuals and companies who are paid for preparing federal taxes after December 31 must be registered with a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). The PTIN requirement goes according to IRC section 6109 (a) (4) that states that every tax preparer must indicate their PTIN with the returns they prepare. Tax preparers are allowed to use their PTINs in place of their Social Security numbers.
