Sorry to be late in getting this post “up”. I was hoping for more “stuff” to include. If you have come across any BUZZ you want to share with fellow tax pros let me know.
+ Click here to learn how to “Register your opinion on the IRS decision to retiretwo e-Services products”.
+ William Perez provides “IRS Update for July 26, 2013”, which lists “pages or files residing on IRS.gov that are new or updated from July 19 to July 25, 2013”.
William will be posting such an update every Friday.
+ The IRS’s mandatory RTRP program may be dead (hopefully for good), but the PTIN program continues. ACCOUNTING TODAY reports “IRS Sends Warning Letters to Preparers With Old PTINs”.
The following statement still applies -
“As of Jan. 1, 2011, anyone who, for compensation, prepares or helps prepare all or substantially all of any federal return or claim for refund must have a valid PTIN and use that PTIN as the identifying number on returns, the IRS noted. All PTINs must be renewed annually.”
“The IRS also said it is continuing efforts to identify paid preparers entering no identifying number on returns that they prepared.”
+ An email from NATP introduced me to the product described below. Perhaps it is something you should consider purchasing. I have not ordered or seen this book but am considering a purchase to supplement the many forms, schedules and worksheets I have developed for external and internal use in my 1040 practice (click here).
FYI - there is a special discounted price of $75.00 for NATP members. If you are not already a member, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (with “NATP Membership” in the subject line) to receive membership information.
