On June 1, 2017, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia upheld the Internal Revenue Service’s authority to require the use of a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN), but enjoined the IRS from charging a user fee for the issuance and renewal of PTINs. As a result of this order, PTIN registration and renewal on the IRS website is currently suspended.

The IRS, working with the Department of Justice, is considering how to proceed. When additional information becomes available, it will be posted to TheTaxBook website under Tax Industry News.
