I have done practice runs for the questions on FFA site for RTRP exam and also various parts for SEE exam preparation. The questions are very helpful in the preparation for the exams and the explanations given on the site enhanced my knowledge base. The dash board and instant assessment of the percent performance level helped me keep check on my performance and preparation level. I used FFA site in addition to significant self study using IRS publications. Many thanks to FFA for providing such a wonderful tool to tax professionals as me. Mala C.

I completed the final exam last month and because of your system, I passed all three exams on the first attempt. In fact, I was so well prepared that I completed each exam in less than 1 hour. The Fast Forward system was worth the money and more. I can't thank you enough! Charles W.

I passed all parts of the SEE on the first time. It was a hard series of exams and I can truly say that FFA materials and online exams were crucial to my success. I really appreciated the almost instantaneous feedback on any question I sent to you.

I just wanted to inform you that I have, in the past 3 weeks, taken all 3 parts of the EA exam. Using your online test bank and your book, I was able to pass ALL 3 the first time. Thank you. Susan H.

I wanted to tell you that I passed all 3 parts of the enrolled agent exam. I took part 3 the first week in September. You were right, it was the easiest of the 3 parts and I did not need all of the time alloted. Thanks for all your support. I believe that you have a good product and I really could not have done this so fast without it. Janice
Thank you for providing such a wonderful study guide. I passed all three exams on the first try. Sabrina M.
Just letting you know I took the RTRP test for the first time on June 8 and passed. Of course, I give the Lord first credit and second goes to Fast Forward Academy that pushes you to a higher grade.
You also learn things that you have not used before while you are studying, but I just knew when I started taking those tests on line that I would never make it, but I finally made an 83 and 83 and 87, so I said maybe I can make it and I did.
Thanks, Fast Forward Academy. Carol Y.
I finished my EA with your companies study material and am a HUGE fan of your product. I used Gleim at first and although the questions are good technologically they are in the last decade with the software. The best thing about Fast Forward is the advanced software allows you to spend your time much more efficiently. This is important with a family and work. Ken M.
Yes, I have passed all 3 parts of the exam in my first attempt. Thank you for such a good study program! Dawne H.
This site gave me the tools needed to further educate myself and pass the enrolled agent exam. Thank you, I will encourage others looking to pass the exam to start here. Cathy T.
Passed RTRP exam on first try 6/22.
I had taken two of your practice exams, and found questions on actual exam to be significantly easier. I answered all 120 questions in 40 minutes time. Then I did twenty 20 Pub 17 look-ups and changed two answers. Went back and reviewed all with no further changes and finished with 20 min. to spare. I was very pleasantly surprised at the difference in the level of difficulty between practice exams and the real thing - it gave me a lot of confidence. Next up is EA with all three parts scheduled in next two months. Bought your book from Amazon and will be buying EA practice exams. All this to say I think your timed practice exams are an outstanding tool. Benjamin G.
I completed my continuing education credits and I passed the RTRP exam on the first attempt thanks to Fast Forward Academy. I must confess that FFA\'s drills and simulated exams were more difficult than the actual RTRP test, but it was all worth it because I am now more prepared than ever before for the upcoming tax season. I will definitely recommend FFA to a friend or colleague and I will come back for the required annual CE\'s.
Just wanted to let you know that your test bank really helped me pass the ea exam! I went throught each question in the test bank for all 3 parts. I really believe your test bank was a major factor in passing the test. Thank you! Connie K.

As of Friday, January 18, 2013, the United States District Court has enjoined the IRS from enforcing the regulatory requirements for Registered Tax Return Preparers. The IRS, working with the Department of Justice, continues to have confidence in the scope of its authority to administer this program. For now, the program requirements are voluntary and tests are not being administered. This may change if the IRS succeeds in its planned appeal or with the passage of new legislation.
First, Sign Up with the IRS Online.
Paid federal tax return preparers started signing up using the new PTIN system in mid-September 2010. As of January 1, 2011, all tax return preparers, including those tax return preparers who are attorneys, certified public accountants, and enrolled agents, must have PTINs if they prepare tax returns. The online sign up form will be available at http://www.irs.gov/taxpros/. The IRS is assessing an annual fee of $64.25 for the PTIN registration and $63.00 for renewal.
Every single professional that prepares and files tax returns must pay the $64.25 fee annually ($63 for renewals) and sign up for a PTIN using the new process even if you already have a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) number assigned from the IRS. If you already have a PTIN number, that number will stay the same in most cases.
Second, Complete an RTRP Competency Exam. Registered tax preparers only. Attorneys, certified public accountants, and enrolled agents are exempt.
Paid federal tax return preparers must pass an IRS RTRP competency exam to officially become a Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP). PTIN registration is very important because if you already have your PTIN before or during the 2011 tax season, you may have until December 31, 2013 to complete this exam and take the test an unlimited number of times until you pass it.
Prometric will administer the RTRP competency exams for the IRS. The test will have 120 questions consisting of multiple choice and true / false questions. Each person will have 2.5 hours to complete the entire RTRP exam. The fee to take the exam is $116, pass or fail. The test is open book in the sense that Prometric will provide individuals with Publication 17, Form 1040 and Form 1040 instructions as reference materials during the exam. Please visit our IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) Exam Specification page for specific topics covered on the RTRP exam.
Attorneys, certified public accountants, and enrolled agents are exempt from the IRS RTRP competency test requirement. Enrolled actuaries and enrolled retirement plan agents are exempt from the registered tax return preparer competency test requirement if they only prepare returns within the limited practice areas of these groups.
The Fast Forward Academy IRS Tax Preparer Course & RTRP Exam Study Guide + Practice Exams including both Wages & Small Business Returns 1040 Series is available here today!
Finally, Annual RTRP Continuing Professional Education (CPE). Registered tax return preparers only. Attorneys, certified public accountants, and enrolled agents are exempt from this new requirement.
A new continuing education requirement of 15 hours per year begins this year (2012). Per the IRS, courses will need to include 3 hours of federal tax law updates, 2 hours of ethics, and 10 hours of other federal tax law. This will not apply to attorneys, certified public accountants, enrolled agents, enrolled actuaries, or enrolled retirement plan agents due to their existing education requirements.
