***June 1, 2015....Finally the day has arrived. The 2016 Annual Federal Tax Refresher course is available for tax preparers.****
This new program aims to recognize the efforts of non-credentialed return preparers who aspire to a higher level of professionalism. Meet the requirements by obtaining 18 hours of continuing education, including a six hour federal tax law refresher course with test, and you will receive an Annual Filing Season Program – Record of Completion from the IRS. ***To qualify, these hours must be completed by December 31, 2015 or they will NOT be accepted by the IRS.*** Submission of these hours may not show up in the IRS system prior to the deadline because of their processing time, but all that is necessary is the completion of these course prior to the deadline.

***Note....Per IRS requirements, the 6 hour Annual Federal Tax Refresher Course was not available until June 1, 2015 and is now available. The additional 12 hours must include 2 hours of ethics. The other 10 hours may be chosen from a variety of tax related courses in our course catalog under the AFSP - Tax Return Preparer section.
