Just thought I would let you know.
Yesterday (Tuesday) morning I mailed out my Form W-12, with a check, to renew my PTIN, having waited a month for the promised notice from the IRS explaining how to renew online.
Yesterday afternoon after jury duty I went to my mail drop to look for checks (none were there). Included in my mail was the notice from the IRS telling me how to submit my application online.
FYI - New York State is now accepting renewal applications for its annual $100.00 tax preparer extortion fee online. Click here to log-on.
