2018 CTEC CPE 20 Hour - Small Business and Depreciation
In order to maintain the California Registered Tax Preparer (CRTP) designation you will need to successfully complete our 20 Hour California Tax Course which will allow you to continue to prepare tax returns for compensation in California. Our tax course (CTEC Provider #2052 and IRS Provider # JK8E2) is designed for tax preparers who are looking for a course that will meet both the CTEC and IRS Annual Filing Season Program Continuing Education income tax course requirements. The tax course will review small business and depreciation and will fulfill the CTEC CE and IRS AFSP requirements. Our CTEC-IRS tax course includes 10 hours of federal law topics, 3 hours of federal law updates, 2 hours of ethics and 5 hours of state.
CTEC-IRS Continuing Education Requirements
Course Prerequisites: High school diploma or high school diploma equivalent is recommended as well as completion of our Personal Income Tax Return course. Current registration with the California Tax Education Council (CTEC) is required. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the California Tax Education Council (CTEC) also require individuals to possess a valid Personal Tax Identification Number (PTIN).
The California Tax Education Council also requires that you complete 20 credit hours of continuing tax education CE by October 31st of each year: 10 hours of federal law topics, 3 hours of federal law updates, 2 hours of ethics and 5 hours of state. Once you complete our CTEC Continuing Professional Education Tax Course you will receive a Certificate of Completion for the IRS and CTEC. Platinum will then report your completion electronically to IRS and CTEC. You will then be able to register online at www.ctec.org. The fee is $25.00 to register with CTEC. CTEC's late fee is $55 which extends the deadline up to January 15th. Additionally, CRTPs who do not renew their registration by January 15, 2018 and each year thereafter, will have to re-take the 60-hour qualifying education course from an approved education provider and register as a new CRTP. In addition, the IRS requires non-credentialed or non exempt tax preparers to complete 18 credit hours of continuing education including an Annual Federal Tax Refresher (AFTR) if they want to be an IRS AFSP Record of Completion Holder. CTEC Tax Preparers are considered exempt and are only required to take 15 hours of IRS CE, which is already included within our 20 hour CTEC courses. Please note: The IRS Annual Filing Season Program is only available between June 1st and December 31st. Again, 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 AFSP (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 certificate. The IRS will then list AFSP tax preparers in their public database including the tax preparer's credentials.
