EfficientOnce you enroll in our online tax course, you can start studying immediately online. Learn 24/7, and at your own pace. No sitting in classrooms. No waiting for books or materials to be sent to you. Best of all your CTEC and IRS Certificate of Completion is emailed to you immediately following the successful completion course. Platinum will then report your completion electronically to IRS and CTEC. You will then be able to register online with CTEC to renew your registation. Once the tax preparer has met all three requirements for the Internal Revenue Service AFSC (renewed their PTIN, taken appropriate amount of continuing education, completed and passed the AFTR course/test if required), a record of completion will be available in the PTIN holder's online IRS account for printing. Any "unenrolled" preparer not already bound by Circular 230 will need to sign an agreement to follow sub-part b of Circular 230 before being able to print the certificate from the Internal Revenue Service. There will be no cost to the preparer for the AFSP record of completion. The IRS will then list AFSP tax preparers in their public database including the tax preparer's credentials.
