NATP's Concerns with PPS Identity Verification
On January 3, 2018, changes were made to the IRM that now require tax practitioners to verify their identity by providing personal information such as their social security number and date of birth when contacting the IRS through the Practitioner Priority Service or any toll-free IRS telephone number. This new procedure has raised concerns among our membership and the tax practitioner community collectively.
Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is arguably the most significant change to the IRC in decades, the law reduces tax rates for individuals and corporations and repeals many deductions, thus simplifying filing for many taxpayers. Most of the individual changes will expire at the end of 2025, meaning the old tax code rates and deductions will return in 2026 unless Congress passes another law before then. Following are the most notable changes taking effect after December 31, 2017.
