Update on the Status of the Court’s RTRP Exam Injunction

The Journal of Accountancy has reported that last week the IRS filed a Notice of Appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. This appeal is directed toward the district court’s January decision that the IRS lacked the authority to administer the RTRP exam or to require tax preparers to take continuing education classes to remain in good standing.

In addition, on Monday, February 25, the IRS asked the district court to lift its injunction, pending the outcome of last week’s notice with the Court of Appeals.

Neither court has yet responded to the IRS’s requests.
