IRS Re-Opens PTIN System after Court Injunction

PTINs will be issued at no cost

Today, the IRS re-opened the PTIN System and is again issuing PTINs. Since the IRS is enjoined from charging a fee, it will issue the PTINs at no cost to the preparer.

If you currently have a PTIN, you can now log into your account to make changes and view CPE information as normal.

At this time, the IRS has no additional comments on whether it will appeal the recent ruling. Until that decision is made, expect no updates regarding the potential for PTIN fee refunds.

When more information is learned, it will be posted at

Stay tuned for updates from National as new developments occur.
