The Holiday Season is upon us and while it is affectionately called the ‘busy season’ and the ‘silly season’ and a host of other nicknames, there is one thing that you don’t want to be doing at the last minute - Trying to get your PTIN number and comply with the new continuing education requirements.
“We ask that you renew your PTIN as soon as possible to avoid a last-minute rush. It’s easy to let this slip as the holiday season approaches” said Carol A. Campbell, director of the IRS Return Preparer Office. “And, if you have a testing requirement and haven’t yet scheduled an appointment, please do so at the same time. “
The holidays will be a hectic and challenging time for everyone. Busy work schedules, holiday travel and extra days out of the office. You don’t need to put any extra pressure on your holiday schedule, get your PTIN now and comply with the continuing education requirements, leave the last minute shopping for last minute shopping.
