Important Information on PTINs:Effective October 2010, new IRS rules require all paid preparers to obtain a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) in advance
of preparing a tax return. If you are a paid preparer, you should obtain this PTIN before you complete this training so that
you can enter your PTIN on this screen. If you are a PTIN holder and you do not enter your PTIN on this screen, you may not receive proper credit for
having taken this test. For information on obtaining a PTIN from the IRS, click here .
