(1) It has been a while since the IRS opened up online renewal of PTINs. However, as I manually “refreshed” my PTIN last year, via Form W-12, I could not just go to the website and renew. I was told that I would need to wait for a letter in the mail with some kind of code before I could renew online.
Guess what? I have still not received any letter or notice from the IRS regarding PTIN renewal. So I printed out and completed a Form W-12 to renew my PTIN for another year. It will go in the mail, with a check, later this morning.
Who wants to bet me that the letter from the IRS will arrive in today’s mail?
(2) Rather than print the same post on both blogs – I just want to bring your attention to today’s post at THE WANDERING PRO titled “A Discussion on Reforming the Tax Code”.
The topic concerns re-writing the Tax Code and should be of interest to tax professionals.
I welcome your comments on the discussion.
