Enrolled Agent Fees are Increasing

Enrolled Agent fees are increasing.

The IRS has announced that the fees for Enrolled Agent applications and renewals will be changing effective June 12, 2019, as follows:
  1. Increase the amount of both the enrollment and renewal user fee for enrolled agents from $30 to $67; and
  2. Remove the initial enrollment user fee and increase the amount of the renewal user fee for enrolled retirement plan agents from $30 to $67.

In November 2018, IRS issued proposed regulations that would increase the amount of both the enrollment and renewal user fee for enrolled agents from $30 to $67.

The proposed regulations would also remove the initial enrollment user fee for enrolled retirement plan agents currently in Reg §300.10 because IRS no longer offers initial enrollment as an enrolled retirement plan agent. In addition, the proposed regulations would also increase the amount of the renewal user fee for enrolled retirement plan agents from $30 to $67.

The IRS has now finalized the regulations without any change. The increased fees are effective on June 12, 2019.
