Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Resources

Please note: The directory is updated regularly although it may take up to four weeks after the IRS receives an update for a tax return preparer's information to be added or revised in the directory.

You can receive information specifically geared to:
  • E-file providers and partners
  • Enrolled actuaries
  • Enrolled agents

In addition:

  • Receive tax information via email from the IRS daily during the tax-filing season and periodically the rest of the year by signing up for IRS Tax Tips.
  • Subscribe to a number of IRS e-mail services which provide updates to tax related information on a local or national level. Each service individually describes the type of information you can expect to receive.
