The Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) is an identification number that all paid tax return preparers must use on U.S. federal tax submitted to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Anyone who is paid to prepare or assist in preparing federal tax for refund must have PTIN. All enrolled agents must also have a PTIN. A PTIN cannot be shared among multiple individuals or one office. Each individual must obtain his or her own PTIN.
