IRS Issues Final Call to Renew EA Status

Enrolled Agents with Social Security numbers ending in 7, 8 or 9, or those without a Social Security number who haven’t timely renewed their enrollment status, need to do so as soon as possible: The IRS will soon begin moving these EAs to inactive or terminated status.

Next month, the IRS will begin sending letters to EAs whose enrollment status is being inactivated or terminated because of failure to renew.

EAs with SSNs ending in 7, 8 or 9, or without an SSN, who did not renew for the 2015 cycle will have their enrollment placed in inactive status. EAs with SSNs ending in 7, 8 or 9, or without an SSN, who have not renewed for the previous two cycles will have their enrollment placed in terminated status.

If you have questions about your enrollment status, e-mail the Enrolled Agent Policy and Management mailbox at epp@irs.gov.
