The Internal Revenue Service is adding extra staff starting Tuesday to help tax professionals reinstate their e-Services accounts.

In an email to tax professionals Tuesday, the IRS said the additional staff will only be available until Friday. The IRS pointed out that tax professionals who have received a Letter 5903, e-Services Revalidation, need to revalidate their identity. The E-Services registration accounts were suspended for tax pros who received Letter 5903 and failed to revalidate their identities within the required 30-day time period. The IRS is encouraging tax professionals who need to revalidate their identity to do it this week while the extra staff is on hand instead of waiting until they have an emergency and need to access their e-Services accounts right away.
