IRS Statement on Court Ruling Related to Return Preparers

Update Feb. 21, 2014

On Feb. 11, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld the decision of the lower court in the case of Loving vs. IRS, finding insufficient statutory support for the IRS’ regulation of federal tax return preparers.

Taxpayer reliance on paid tax return preparers and effective tax administration are inextricably linked to quality return preparation. As we assess the scope and impact of the court’s decision and determine our way forward, our focus on improved competency will continue.  

Please continue to check this site for additional information as it becomes available.

Background

On Friday, Jan. 18, 2013, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia enjoined the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing the regulatory requirements for registered tax return preparers. In accordance with this order, tax return preparers covered by this program are not required to complete competency testing or secure continuing education. The ruling does not affect the regulatory practice requirements for CPAs, attorneys, enrolled agents, enrolled retirement plan agents or enrolled actuaries.

On Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, the court modified its order to clarify that the order does not affect the requirement for all paid tax return preparers to obtain a preparer tax identification number (PTIN). Consistent with this modification, the IRS has reopened the online PTIN system. On March 29, 2013, the IRS appealed the district court opinion.

In July 2013, the IRS refunded testing fees to return preparers who tested or were scheduled to test on or after Jan. 18, 2013 (the date the registered tax return preparer test was enjoined). No decisions have been made about additional refunds related to registered tax return preparer regulations at this time.

Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez tax law. Filing form 1040ez Employees of international organizations can exempt their wages either by a provision, if one exists, in the international agreement creating the international organization, or by meeting the requirements of U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez tax law. Filing form 1040ez The exemption discussed in this chapter applies only to pay received for services performed for a foreign government or international organization. Filing form 1040ez Other U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez income received by persons who qualify for this exemption may be fully taxable or given favorable treatment under an applicable tax treaty provision.

Filing form 1040ez Exemption Under Tax Treaty If you are from a country that has a tax treaty with the United States, you should first look at the treaty to see if there is a provision that exempts your income. Filing form 1040ez The income of U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez citizens and resident aliens working for foreign governments usually is not exempt. Filing form 1040ez However, in a few instances, the income of a U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez citizen with dual citizenship may qualify. Filing form 1040ez Often the exemption is limited to the income of persons who also are nationals of the foreign country involved. Filing form 1040ez Exemption Under U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez Tax Law Employees of foreign governments who do not qualify under a tax treaty provision and employees of international organizations may qualify for exemption by meeting the following requirements of U.

Filing form 1040ez tax law applies only to current employees and not to former employees. Filing form 1040ez Pensions received by former employees living in the United States do not qualify for the exemption discussed here. Filing form 1040ez Employees of foreign governments. Filing form 1040ez   If you are not a U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez citizen, or if you are a U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez citizen but also a citizen of the Philippines, and you work for a foreign government in the United States, your foreign government salary is exempt from U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez tax if you perform services similar to those performed by U. Filing form 1040ez S.

Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez government employees performing similar services in its country or you must establish those facts.

Filing form 1040ez citizen (or you are a U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez citizen but are also a citizen of the Philippines), your salary from that organization is exempt from U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez tax. Filing form 1040ez However, see Aliens who keep immigrant status , later, for a special rule that may affect your qualifying for this exemption. Filing form 1040ez   An international organization is an organization designated by the President of the United States through Executive Order to qualify for the privileges, exemptions, and immunities provided in the International Organizations Immunities Act. Filing form 1040ez   You should find out if you have been made known to, and have been accepted by, the Secretary of State as an officer or an employee of that organization, or if you have been designated by the Secretary of State, before formal notification and acceptance, as a prospective officer or employee. Filing form 1040ez   If you are claiming exemption, you should know the number of the Executive Order covering the international organization and should have some written evidence of your acceptance or designation by the Secretary of State. Filing form 1040ez   The exemption is denied when, because the Secretary of State determines your presence in the United States is no longer desirable, you leave the United States (or after a reasonable time allowed for leaving the United States). Filing form 1040ez The exemption is also denied when a foreign country does not allow similar exemptions to U. Filing form 1040ez S. Filing form 1040ez citizens.
