25 years worth of data available from IRS on Disciplinary Matters

NOVEMBER 17, 2016     RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

The IRS will now provide an updated list dating back 25 years of the Office of Professional Responsibility's (OPR's) censures, suspensions, disbarments, and miscellaneous restrictions against tax practitioners. The 25 year period aligns with the OPR’s record-retention requirement.

As noted on its web site, "the document will be updated to add new entries when a disciplinary announcement is published in the IRB. The OPR will also make updates to reflect reinstatements to practice after the end of a practitioner’s suspension or disbarment from practice, and to remove data related to a disciplinary sanction once the date it was imposed passes the 25-year mark". 

Progress.
