IRS dropping email addresses from PTIN and EA FOIA listings

Written on Dec 13, 2017

Effective Dec. 1, 2017, the electronic listings on IRS.gov containing information about Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) holders and Enrolled Agents will no longer include their email addresses.

The IRS said the decision was made after carefully considering the challenges related to the interests of data security and protection, especially those directed at tax return preparer information.
