Black Out Dates for CE Provider System

The Continuing Education (CE) Provider System will be unavailable September 14 -18, 2016

The IRS is in the process of transitioning to a new on-line CE Provider System. The current system is scheduled to go down at 11:59 p.m. (local time) on September 13. It is anticipated that the new system will be available at 8:00 a.m. ET on September 19, so please plan accordingly. During this time, you will not be able to edit account information, get new program numbers, report PTIN records, or access your account.  We will hold informational calls with CE Providers on September 8, 9, 12 and 13 to discuss the new system and what users can expect. We invite all providers to attend one of the sessions and have included information on how to register.

The new CE system’s web address is and should be bookmarked for future reference. When the new system launches, you will be required to reset your password.

If there are any changes to this schedule, status updates will be sent in an email to the Point of Contact (POC) reflected in your CE Provider account and posted at
