Hi to all --

I've signed up for the EA exam this September (wish me luck,
everyone -- I'm up to my eyeballs studying like I haven't
done since college 20+ years ago).

The IRS has cashed my check (a couple of weeks ago, now),
but I have had no word from them otherwise about exam
location or anything.

Is this usual? When should I start worrying that they (or
the Post Office) have misplaced my exam information?

Thanks to all!

I called the hotline listed on the Form 2587. The recording said that
you should call the hotline if you have not received the credential
letter by September 3, 2004. There are probably an unusually large
number of participants this year due to the reported changes to the
SEE in 2005 that will no longer be taking place, which would explain
the Service's slowness.

Good luck! Give it til mid week next week and then call them, unless you know
of someone who has heard from them already. If so, call now.

I haven't received the confirmation letter yet either. They say if you haven't
received it 20 days before the test, call or e-mail them. I did send an e-mail
and haven't heard anything yet. I'll wait a couple days before calling. Will

The latest from the IRS (see Web site) is that the SEE WILL
NOT change in 2005, and 2004 partial-passes WILL carryover.

Thanks to Brian, Helen, and everyone else who responded to
me. I will be calling the hotline number today (the 7th),
as it's well after the 3rd (assuming the letter isn't in
today's mail).

difference!)
