Time to renew Preparer Tax Identification Numbers by December 31
Paid tax return preparers with a PTIN expiring on Dec. 31, 2023, need to renew their PTIN with the online renewal process. It takes about 15 minutes to renew online.
Anyone who’s paid to prepare or helps prepare any U.S. federal tax return or a claim for refund must have a valid PTIN from the IRS. All 2023 PTINs will expire Dec. 31, 2023. The non-refundable fee to get or renew a PTIN is $19.75 for 2024.
While it is faster to renew online, paid tax return preparers can also renew their PTINs with Form W-12, IRS Paid Preparer Tax Identification Number Application and Renewal. It can take up to six weeks to process paper applications and renewals.

Program for non-credentialed tax return preparers
Non-credentialed tax return preparers who participate in the IRS Annual Filing Season Program get educational credits, and the IRS includes them in a directory of return preparers on the IRS website. Taxpayers can use the IRS directory to find tax return preparers in their area who have completed the program or hold professional credentials recognized by the IRS. The Annual Filing Season Program is voluntary for tax return prepares who aren’t enrolled agents, attorneys or CPAs.
