I have absolutely no use for “social media” such as My Face and Spacebook. If I want to publicize my business I will use a website, and if I want to share pictures and information with friends and family I will use email.
I do, however, find Twitter very useful, not as “social media” as such, but, as a tax professional, to keep up-to-date on tax developments (it is a good way for taxpayers to keep up-to-date as well), and as writer of this blog to find items of interest for the BUZZ posts.
NATP has advised, via a “tweet” that previously registered tax preparers can now renew their PTIN onlne. This is the first I heard of this development.
You must first log in to the PTIN system. I tried but found that I did not have an online account.
Apparently, if you obtained your PTIN via paper Form W-12 last year (as I did) you must apparently wait to receive a Letter 4762 in the mail for instructions on establishing an online account.
So either click here to renew, or wait to receive the Letter 4762 in the mail.
