The Internal Revenue Service said it would refund fees collected for registered tax return preparer tests that were canceled due to a court injunction.

In addition, the fees collected from return preparers who tested on or after Jan. 18, 2013, the date the test was enjoined, are also being refunded. “No additional refund or reimbursement requests related to registered tax return preparer regulation are being provided or considered at this time,” the IRS said in an email to tax professionals Friday. “E-mail notifications will be provided to those receiving refunds to explain the process. No action is necessary to receive the refund. A credit for the test fee will automatically be made to the account used to pay the fee. It is anticipated that all refunds will be processed by July 19, 2013.”
