Letters Mailed to Preparers Without Valid PTINs

The IRS Return Preparer Office recently mailed letters to approximately 5,000 return preparers who are preparing tax returns without a valid preparer tax identification number (PTIN).
  • Letter 4731 was sent to more than 500 people who are using a legacy PTIN that was obtained prior to September 2010 and has never been renewed in the new online PTIN system.
  • Letter 4732 was sent to more than 800 people who are using a social security number as their preparer ID number instead of a PTIN.
  • Letter 4966 was sent to more than 3,600 people who are using an expired PTIN.

Anyone who receives a letter and has questions should call the PTIN helpline at 877-613-PTIN.
