Once you gather all of your information, just follow four easy steps to obtain your PTIN:

  • Create Your Account — First, you must create an account by providing your name, email address and security question information. The system will then email your temporary password, which you will change when you go back to enter your information in the PTIN application.

  • Apply for Your PTIN — You will complete the online application by providing personal information, information about your previous year’s tax return, professional credentials, and more as shown above.

  • Pay Your Fee — The application will transfer you to our partner bank where you will make your payment of $64.25 by credit card or direct debit.

  • Get Your PTIN — After the bank confirms your payment, your PTIN is provided online.

Note: All PTIN correspondence is delivered through secure online messaging in your PTIN account. Use the most up-to-date email address when obtaining your PTIN to ensure that you receive our messages.


1 Tax return information is required to authenticate your identity. If you filed your tax return in the past 8 weeks, please use a previous year’s individual tax return.
