Return Preparer Office Internal Revenue Service Note from the Editor: even though recent court rulings have prevented the IRS from collecting fees for the PTIN system, they did not eliminate the requirement to register annually in order to prepare tax returns. All tax professionals must register with the PTIN system in order to be eligible to file tax returns as a paid preparer in 2018.
