IRS Proposes User Fee Increase for Enrolled Actuaries

The IRS has issued a proposed rule to increase the renewal fee for Enrolled Actuaries from $250 to $680. The current user fee was set in 2007. Enrollment is for a three-year term, and individuals granted enrollment or renewal as an enrolled actuary may perform actuarial services under ERISA and practice before the IRS as provided in Circular 230.

Public comments will be accepted until December 5, 2022. A public hearing has been scheduled for December 16, 2022, at 10 a.m. ET. The proposed increase would become effective 30 days after publication of a final rule in the federal register.
