Tax Professional Requirements

The IRS has implemented a new Education and Testing requirement for all Paid Tax Preparers.

Education and Testing – Starting this year all paid tax return preparers must have 15 hours of continuing tax education for every tax season.  They must also pass an IRS standardized basic skills competency test by the end of 2013. There are limited exclusions to the test. There are NO exclusions to the requirement for the 15 hours of CPE.

Regina has completed her Continuing Education for this Tax Season and will take the required test sometime before the end of 2013.
