Enrollment fees will double for agents representing taxpayers before the IRS under a new Treasury Department rule.

The user fee for enrolled agents and enrolled retirement plan agents will jump from $30 to $67. The fees must be paid every three years.

The rule will be published in the Federal Register May 13 and will take effect June 12.
