IRS Plans PTIN Address Change Option

Thursday, November 24, 2011 Print Email

The Internal Revenue Service said it plans to add a new option to its Preparer Tax Identification Number system in December for users who need to change the email address associated with their online PTIN accounts.

The new option will also help people who have forgotten their user IDs or passwords, but don’t have access anymore to their original email accounts, according to an IRS email alert to tax professionals on Wednesday.

The IRS encouraged tax preparers in this situation to wait for the online option coming next month instead of sending paper applications, which can take between four and six weeks to process.
