What is a PTIN does that apply to me?

Your tax return using the TurboTax software is Self-Prepared.  You do NOT enter anything in the section for a Paid Preparer

The Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) is an identification number that all paid tax return preparers must use on U.S. federal tax returns or claims for refund submitted to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
