READY TO GET STARTED? HERE'S THE BREAKDOWN OF OUR TAX PREPARER TRAINING PROGRAM

Our training program is available online in our virtual classroom.

Our tax preparer program is a 5-week training course. Every week you will attend 3 classes that run for about 2 hours long.

During class we will review course materials, complete course exercises, and run through real-life tax scenarios. 

Our training program meets the 60-hour qualification required to register with the IRS and CTEC as a tax preparer. 

Q&A Seminar

Your training program will not only meet the 60-hour IRS and CTEC requirements to legally register as a tax preparer, but we will also help you with the registration process itself. Our program will make sure that you are properly registered with the IRS and that you successfully obtain your PTIN and we will also make sure that you are properly registered within your state and that you successfully obtain your state license to practice tax preparation. In California, we will make sure you complete the additional obligations required to obtain your CTEC registration.

  • meet all state and federal requirements to register as a licensed tax professional

  • have your own tax software - the same software that you will learn to use during your training
