Practice Exams ONLY
Thanks to everyone involved in this service. Concerns about test bank questions were answered promptly and with perfect explanation of the portion of tax law involved. I passed all three exams thanks to the practice tests, and the test bank integration with practice test results. The unlimited practice test purchase was worth every penny and then some. Daria M.

I just passed my final EA exam. I took Part 3 first, then Part 1, then Part 2 Business Taxation last. They were all a challenge but especially the Business Taxation part. I want to thank you for helping me get thru all of them the first time. Your info was concise, understandable and relevant. Any question I submitted while studying was answered almost immediately. Thanks for offering a great product and service. I will continue to use FFA as my CPE resource. Larry H.

I am thrilled! I passed all SEE tests on the first attempt. Thank You, FastForward! Your study material was right on the mark, and the ability to simulate the actual test with your practice exams helped put me over the top. I started studying in June12 after a short break from tax season and got my EA Certificate in Oct/12. I am recommending FastForward to everyone who is interested in the Enrolled Agent designation. Joan F.

I used the EA book, part-1 & the free online test bank as my preparation for my EA exam. I spent my little time at night for about 2 months for the study & review. Guess what, I came to the testing center with the confidence that I will pass and I did pass the 1st one easily. I have no time to work on part 2 & 3, but I will try my best. I strongly believe Fast Forward Academy provides EA candidates great resouce for passing the exam the first time. Thinh N.
Well, you've met your pass guarantee. Used the materials and tools and was able to pass all three parts the first time within a month. Tony V.

I study your material and passed the exam on my first try. I don't think I could have done this with out the material your company offered. Thanks it was well worth it. Larry G.
I want to thank you for your help in passing all three parts of this tough exam. Your course has been an essential tool for me to be successful in obtaining the passing score on the SEE eaxmination. After a few attempts on my own and obtaining 91 to 98 points, my wife suggested that I review with a course tailored just to pass in a fast pace. So, I chose Fast Forward at the end of June and I have been congratulated on all three parts within the month of July; now I am waiting for my designation as an EA. I recommend this course to anyone with my years of experience who wants to become an Enrolled Agent fast. It was a Fast Forward experience for a fast pass of the SEE. Thank you! Fritz S.
All of your courses are very good. I am very satisfied. Thank you. Philip L.
I am thrilled to report that I have just passed all three parts of the S.E.E.- and on the first attempt, as well! As a retired elementary school schoolteacher, I spent 30 years preparing third graders to take the various state exams, and so when I decided to tackle the EA- after only one year of preparing taxes for H & R Block (limited to primarily 1040EZs, since it was my first year)- I knew that it would benefit me to find a resource that would give me insight into the depth and type of questions and in what format I would find them. I went online and found your book to study for background knowledge, multiple practice exams that not only told me exactly what to expect and how to more efficiently utilize my study time, suggestions on how to take a test and where to find previous IRS exams, but perhaps most importantly for me as a learner, gave me correct answers to the multiple choice practice questions and a thorough explanation as to why they were right. That is what set it apart from any other resources I perused online. I made a notebook of all the Fast Forward Academy questions by chapter (with the answers and the explanations) and used them like flashcards in doctors' waiting rooms, during television commercials, and sitting in the car at red lights. It worked! Thank you so much! Janet L.

The best way to Learn Fast and Pass is to use the Fast Forward Academy tools as follows:
Using the Test Bank:
Now it is time to take a Practice Exam...
Time to study more... Test Bank - Step 2
The Fast Forward Academy Best Strategy to Pass is a proven study method which garners excellent results. While the steps above can be executed in various manners, following this prescribed method will help facilitate successful completion of the IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer competency exam.
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.
