Renewal Question

Question: How do I renew my PTIN?

Answer: First, login to your online PTIN account. For help, see: How do I access my online PTIN account?

On the Main Menu, next to “PTIN Renewal”, click on “Select” and then follow the prompts to complete your renewal online.

If you do not have an online PTIN account, you can create one by clicking “New User” on the PTIN system login page.

In order to link your new online account to your existing PTIN, you will need an activation code. These codes are generally sent out automatically during open season or you can contact the PTIN helpline to obtain one.
