Pushing back against the IRS PTIN Fees

Posted by taxguru on September 10, 2014

Interesting article and comments regarding the IRS’s recently enacted policy of charging us preparers for the annual use of a PTIN, which used to be free.  It’s great to see other tax practitioners who are not afraid to publicly disagree with IRS practices. 

 CPAs Sue IRS over PTIN Fees

The main concern isn’t the amount of money IRS is charging for the PTIN, which is actually a small fraction of what we already pay to maintain our CPA licenses; but the increasing control IRS is trying to exercise over our relationship with our clients in regard to helping them legally reduce their tax burdens.
