It is time to renew your status as an enrolled agent.


You must renew your status as an enrolled agent every three years in order to remain eligible to practice before the IRS. Because your Social Security number ends in 7, 8, 9, or you do not have an SSN, you must renew by January 31, 2021.
• Renew your license using Form 8554, Application for Renewal of Enrollment to Practice Before the IRS, at between November 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021.
• Go to and enter “8554” in the Search Public Forms box on the left-hand side.
• Complete the online form and pay the $67 renewal fee.
• Renewals may take up to 90 days to process.
All enrolled agents must also have an active Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and you must enter it on Form 8554.
