Hello. Thank you for choosing this Q&A service for assistance. My name is Angela. I will be assisting you.

Enrolled agents use Form 8554 to renew on a staggered schedule, based on the last digit of the enrolled agent’s social security number. The renewal period is November 1 through January 31 (do not renew early). To be eligible for renewal, enrolled agents must complete 72 continuing education (CE) credit hours for the three year cycle, with a minimum of 16 CE per year and two CE credit hours per year in Ethics. New enrolled agents have a pro-rated CE requirement for the first renewal, and must earn 2 hours of qualifying CE per month in addition to 2 hours of Ethics per year.

If you fail to renew your license for two cycles, your license will be inactivated and you will be required to retake the Enrolled Agent exam. Essentially, after the first missed renewal, you have three years to reactivate your license.

If you do not require further assistance with this matter, I ask that you please take the time to scroll to the top of the page and select 3 or more stars to positively rate my response so that I can receive credit for assisting you. A 5 star rating is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
