Don’t forget you must register with the IRS to get or renew your PTIN for 2011. Fee is $64.25. You probably received a letter recently giving you the web address to register: www.irs.gov/taxpros
I just registered. Took 25 minutes. Might want to have your CAF and EFIN (electonic filing number) handy. I noticed that my renewal will expire 11-30-11, which I suppose means I will have to renew next year before 11-30. So if such trivia matters, you might want to wait until after 12-1 to register.
