IRS Letters and Visits to Return Preparers

The Internal Revenue Service sends many letters annually to federal tax return preparers. Beginning in November 2013, the agency began its fifth year of a hands-on effort to improve the accuracy and quality of filed tax returns and to heighten awareness of preparer responsibilities. Approximately 12,000 letters will be sent to tax return preparers nationwide. Types of letters sent include:

Letter 4810 - Sent in November 2013 advising the recipient that an IRS representative will contact them to schedule an educational visit to review their responsibilities in correctly preparing the Schedule C.

Letter 5105 - Sent in December 2013 recommending the recipient review all Schedule C and preparer due diligence rules, as well as pay special attention to Schedule C accuracy in 2014.

Letter 5271 - Sent in December 2013 recommending the recipient review all Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) and preparer due diligence rules, as well as pay special attention to ACTC accuracy in 2014.

Letter 5272 - Sent in December 2013 recommending the recipient review all Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) and preparer due diligence rules, as well as pay special attention to ACTC accuracy in 2014 on returns where dependents have an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN).

Letter 5292 - Sent in November 2013 advising the recipient that an IRS representative will contact them to schedule an educational visit to review their responsibilities in correctly following preparer tax identification number (PTIN) rules.

The IRS also regularly checks whether federal tax return preparers are compliant with their own tax filing and payment responsibilities.

Letter 4911 - Sent to notify paid tax return preparers that they are not compliant with their personal tax responsibilities and should resolve the matter to avoid affecting their status as a preparer tax identification number (PTIN) holder.
