IRS Appeals Steele Decision

Earlier this year a court ruled that the IRS cannot charge for Practitioner Tax Identification Numbers (PTINs). To no one’s surprise, yesterday the IRS appealed the decision to the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. It will likely be sometime next year before the case is heard and a decision rendered. I also expect the IRS to ask the Court of Appeals to lift the permanent injunction on charging for PTINs while the appeal is being heard.

I will update when there is additional news.
