IRS Also Releases Proposed Regulations to Amend Circular 230 Rules

Internal Revenue Service - IRSWashington, D.C. — The Internal Revenue Service today announced that a new online application system for compensated tax return preparers is expected to go live in mid-September.

Tax return preparers will be creating PTIN accounts with the IRS when they use the new system.
