PTIN Registration

IRS Registration

Step One: IRS Registration

To provide tax preparation services and file tax returns electronically for compensation, you must obtain two important numbers: a Preparer’s Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and an Electronic Filing Identification Number (EFIN).

The PTIN is an identification number that every paid tax return preparer must use on their United States federal tax returns when submitted to the IRS. You must register with the IRS to obtain a PTIN number, and we are here to help you with the process.

It’s important to note that if your PTIN is under investigation by the IRS Criminal Investigations Division or linked to fraudulent activity, we won’t be able to provide tax preparation solutions to you.

The EFIN is a number assigned by the IRS to allow individuals to file tax returns electronically. You don’t have to pay to get an EFIN, but to apply for an EFIN you must agree to a background check and provide fingerprints during the application process.

We’re happy to assist those who need help obtaining an EFIN after a review of the returns for IRS compliance. However, please note that our e-filing service is exclusively available for those who agree to adhere to the IRS e-file participation requirements and haven’t been denied participation in e-file by the IRS.

At Prestige Tax Office, we pride ourselves on providing excellent client service and education. We’re here to help you learn how to start a tax business. Prestige Tax Office is happy to assist you with IRS registration for your business.

If you have any questions or need more information about obtaining a PTIN or EFIN, please don’t hesitate to call us at (866) 813-2220.
