Getting ready for tax season
The mid-year automatic extension filing season is behind us, and so it's time to set our sights on the tax season ahead, and renew our PTINs. Sure, you can procrastinate until the end of the year if you like, but wouldn't it be nice to have this behind you? Get everyone in your office who needs a PTIN signed up today. And while you're taking care of IRS busy work...
... don't forget to get your EFIN number because you've avoided e-filing for long enough. Starting with the 2012 busy season, tax preparers who prepare more than 10 1040 and/or 1041 tax returns are required to e-file. Unless they're not. Like every good IRS rule, there are exceptions.
