Status of Enrolled Agents This year’s enrolled agent renewal cycle has finished, and the IRS is now beginning the annual clean-up of those who have Social Security Numbers ending in 0, 1, 2, or 3 and did not timely renew. Those who did not renew during the 2016 and 2019 cycles will be moved to terminated status (2,700+). Those who did not renew during the 2019 cycle will be moved to inactive status (4,900+). Letters will be sent to all affected Enrolled Agents beginning this week advising them of the IRS planned action. See letter samples here and here. Anyone in inactive status can still submit a late renewal for approval; with proof of continuing education. Anyone in terminated status must re-take the Special Enrollment Exam (IRS SEE) to apply for re-enrollment. If an EA disagrees and has a record of previously renewing their EA status, they should contact the number on the letter they receive.
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: Increase the amount of both the enrollment and renewal user fee for enrolled agents from $30 to $67; and 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. For more information, click here.
