Posted on October 29, 2015 · Posted in Breaking News, Industry News

10/29/15 – Effective Nov. 1, 2015 the annual fee for 2016 Preparer Tax Identification Numbers (PTINs) will be $50 for both new applications and renewals. The IRS will collect $33 as a user fee to support program costs and a third-party vendor will receive $17 to operate the online system and provide customer support.

In preparation for the fee change, PTIN open season, which normally begins in mid-October, will begin in early November. PTIN open season is when the IRS begins accepting renewals and new registrations for the upcoming year.

The IRS will announce the official opening of PTIN renewal season for 2016 in the next few days.
