Tax Professional

The IRS still accepts CPE for tax preparers, but it is no longer a mandatory requirement. Consider participating the in the new IRS Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP).

Enrolled Agent

The IRS requires EAs to complete a minimum of 16 hours of CE annually, with 72 hours completed in a 3 year period. We suggest taking 24 hours annually to avoid a large deficit in year 3.

AFSP

To receive the AFSP Record of Completion, a non-exempt preparer must complete the 6 hour AFTR course and exam, 10 hours of federal tax law topics, and 2 hours of ethics.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to my courses?

You have one year from the purchase date to complete all courses with the exception of the AFTR course, which expires December 31.

Do these courses count for CPA credit?

Many of our courses have NASBA and QAS approval. We do not register our courses with individual state boards of accountancy so please ensure your state accepts NASBA registered courses. IRS Tax Ethics courses do not qualify for CPA ethics credit, as they do not cover accounting topics.

Do you have a California State Tax Law course for CTEC?

We do not have the 5-hour course on CA tax law. All other courses qualify for CTEC federal tax and ethics. Please let us know if you are interested in a CA tax law course.

Are you an IRS approved continuing education provider?

Yes. We are an approved continuing education provider with several regulators. Our provider numbers are:

  • IRS approved provider number: UBWMF
  • CTEC approved provider number: 6209
  • NASBA approved provider number: 116347
Do these courses qualify for enrolled agent continuing education?

Yes. All courses meet the IRS requirements for enrolled agent CPE. The one exception is the Annual Federal Tax Refresher course, as the IRS does not allow an Enrolled Agent to receive credit.

When do I receive my CPE certificates for completed courses?

We provide a certificate to you immediately upon passing the course exam. In addition, you can retrieve a pdf copy of your certificate from our website.

How frequently do you report to the IRS?

We report CPE course completions to the IRS daily for Enrolled Agents and Tax Preparers during peak times in November and December. In other months, we report weekly.

Do you report instantly to CTEC?

Yes, for California tax preparers we report to the California Tax Education Council (CTEC) immediately once you complete the course.

Do I need to pay more for reporting to the IRS or CTEC?

No. There are no additional fees to report these courses. In fact, if you have multiple credentials we report to all providers for no additional cost.

Do you have courses on IRS representation?

Yes. These courses are a must for Enrolled Agents, CPAs, and any Tax Preparer looking to improve their ability to help clients navigate the IRS rules.

Are these CPE courses available online?

Yes. All courses are online. We have both text and video courses available.
