The IRS has announced plans to require “unenrolled” tax preparers (those who are not CPAs, Attorneys, or Enrolled Agents) to register with the IRS and meet suitability standards prior to the 2011 tax season. Under the proposal, registered preparers would also be required to complete 15 hours of continuing professional education (CPE) annually (date TBD) to continue to practice. The annual CPE must include ten hours of federal income tax, 3 hours of federal income tax update, and 2 hours of ethics. Tax preparers will have to be registered, pass a competency test, and complete continuing professional education.
This course is approved by CTEC, IRS OPR for EA continuing education, OSBTP, NASBA, Qualified Sponsor for CFP.
This course is designed to enhance the knowledge and experience of tax practitioners. Prior tax preparation experience/knowledge is required. Students normally enroll in this course after completing the Comprehensive Income Tax Course, the Advanced Level I Income Tax Course and working at least one season as a tax preparer. This course will give you the confidence to take on more complex returns by reinforcing your existing tax knowledge and building on it. This course is also suitable for a veteran preparer who needs to refresh his/her skills. The course consists of 10 chapters which take 3 hours per chapter to complete. If you are an enrolled agent, accountant, lawyer, financial planner, business owner, experienced tax preparer, or just interested in increasing your tax knowledge, the Advanced Course will enable you to prepare more complex individual tax returns. This course provides the critical education and knowledge which make the graduates more competent and successful than their competitors.
