During a recent National Public Liaison (NPL) meeting, which was attended by Nina Tross, NSTP Executive Director, and Keith Huebel, NSTP President of the Board, we had an opportunity to meet with the Commissioner of the IRS, Charles Rettig.
he Internal Revenue Service today reminded the nation’s more than 768,000 federal tax return preparers that they must renew their Preparer Tax Identification Numbers (PTINs) for 2019. All current PTINs will expire Dec. 31, 2018.
The Internal Revenue Service and the Security Summit partners warned tax professionals that savvy cybercriminals target IRS-issued identification numbers to help impersonate practitioners as well as taxpayers.
As part of IRS’ ongoing efforts to strengthen the security of IRS systems, we will soon be changing the name of the email server domain that we use to issue messages to PTIN holders from the online PTIN system.
