Any person who prepares, or assists in preparing, a tax return must renew their Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). This includes CPAs and Enrolled Agents as well as independent preparers.
All PTINs expire on Dec. 31 and must be renewed annually. The renewal fee is $63 online at www.IRS.gov/ptin, and new PTIN numbers are $64.25.
