New this year we are offering one-day workshops and study materials intended to help participants prepare for the Registered Tax Return Preparer competency exam.
We offer a number of two-day workshops on Federal and State taxes designed to provide updates on the latest tax laws and regulations. These workshops are given in November and December at various locations in Massachusetts. The content changes each year and is based on materials in the current Income Tax Workbook. This workbook, which is completely rewritten each year, is used at similar tax schools throughout the United States. The workshops meet the annual 15-hour continuing education requirement for Registered Tax Return Preparers, including 2 hours of ethics and at least 3 hours of federal tax updates. In addition, there are 2 hours devoted to Massachusetts tax updates.
Workshops are offered in cooperation with the Internal Revenue service and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue.
Participants needing to fulfill continuing professional education requirements can obtain CPE credits, as can those who need Massachusetts Division of Insurance credits and CFP® certificants. Further details can be found in the brochure.
The one-day exam preparation workshops are intended for provisional PTIN holders who have until December 2013 to pass the competency exam and for individuals who wish to become Registered Tax Return Preparers. For additional information go to: Preparing for the Registered Tax Return Preparer Exam
The two-day workshops are intended for Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled Agents, Attorneys and Registered Tax Return Preparers. A typical participant will have had several years’ experience in completing individual, small business and partnership returns and will complete 200 or more returns in a year.
