The online PTIN renewal process takes about 15 minutes. Renewed PTINs will be valid for calendar year 2013. The IRS also has significantly upgraded the PTIN system to make it easier to use and more intuitive. Preparers who have forgotten their log-in information, password, or email address can use online tools to resolve these issues. Access your PTIN account at http://www.irs.gov/PTIN. For more information see IR-2012-79.
Many tax professionals will be required to complete 15 hours continuing education as a part of the PTIN renewal process. The Phoenix Tax Group offers a 15 hour continuing education package that makes fulfilling the continuing education requirement a snap!
