Important Update for CPA and return preparers – PTIN applications and renewals for 2020 are now being processed!

Greetings dear truckers! It’s once again time for an update regarding your taxes and renewals. It’s a busy start of the year after the IRS was on a long shut down until it resumed services. It’s time to remind you of some deadlines and renewals up ahead. January 31st, 2020 will be a deadline for paying your Form 2290 taxes for trucks purchased in the month of December 2019. Also, its time to renew your PTIN’s our dear tax preparers.

So The IRS recently started to accept applications for New PTIN registrations and renewals. The Preparer Tax Identification Number or PTIN needs to be obtained by anyone who prepares or assists in preparing a federal tax return for compensation. So where to renew or obtain a new PTIN, please visit the federal website https://rpr.irs.gov/.
