Delayed EA renewal processing


Due to the government shutdown, the processing of renewals for enrolled agents whose enrollment expires March 31, 2019, is delayed. This group includes all EAs with Social Security numbers ending in 0, 1, 2, or 3.

The IRS is automatically extending enrollment card expiration for these renewals.

The deadline for submitting timely renewals was January 31, 2019. All renewal applications will be worked on a first in, first out basis. Enrolled Agents with Social Security numbers ending in 0, 1, 2, or 3 who have not yet submitted a renewal should do so immediately at www.Pay.gov.

The above information has been added to the “Enrolled Agent News” page at www.IRS.gov.
