IRS Delays Disclosure Authorization Retirement for Three Weeks

Good news for tax professionals. When I went to IRS e-services this morning, I was greeted by this message:

DA and EAR Retirement delayed by three weeks

The planned retirement of Disclosure Authorization and Electronic Account Resolution on August 11, 2013 has been delayed until September 2 while IRS completes the transition to our new web portal. DA and EAR users have an additional three weeks to use both electronic products. Once the portal transition work is complete, DA and EAR would then be retired as previously planned and will be unavailable for use.

So we have another three weeks, until September 2nd, when tax professionals can save the IRS money and time by entering Forms 2848 and 8821 ourselves in e-services.
