Our Maryland Tax Return Preparer Prep course will prepare you for the Maryland Board of Individual Tax Preparers Examination and is based on 2023 federal and state tax law (being tested on the Maryland exam after July 2022). The examination is administered by the State Board of Individual Tax Preparers which registers and regulates individual tax preparers subject to the authority of the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. One of the primary requirements for Maryland Tax Preparers is the successful completion of the examination. Our tax preparer class will prepare you for the examination. The tax class covers the personal tax return Form 1040 including income, gains and losses, standard and itemized deductions, tax credits, small business schedule C and depreciation. Reading assignments and quiz questions will guide you through each tax topic so that you will be well prepared for the examination. A final exam will also allow you to practice for the actual examination and includes the same number of questions and the same time allotment as the actual examination. °Video provided on selected reading assignments.  

Course Organization

At checkout you will create a login I.D. and password and have access to the course 24/7. The tax preparation classes are presented in an online E-Book format making the reading material portable if you prefer to work offline. Each reading assignment is then followed by a one or two part quiz presented in a multiple choice format. A series of quiz review questions will guide you so that you will become proficient with the IRS's terminology, guidelines, and procedures and test your understanding of key topics. The answers are submitted online and will be automatically graded. You will be provided with important feedback and answer key to all quiz questions. Once all of the quizzes are completed, you will then need to complete a final exam that will review all of the topics covered. You will receive a pass or fail grade on the final exam but, unlike the quizzes, will not be provided with an answer key or any feedback (to comply with IRS guidelines regarding final testing). All the final exam(s) must be completed with a passing grade of 70% or better in order to receive a certificate of completion.

You have unlimited tries to pass the quizzes and the final exam(s)* (Note that the completion of the quizzes is not mandatory). Discussion forums are available within the tax course. Our "Student Course Forum" is available to chat with other students in the same course and our "General Student Forum" is available to chat with students in all courses. The Certificate of Completion can be printed from within the tax class and is also emailed to you immediately following the successful completion of the tax preparer class. Course completions are then reported to the IRS and, if applicable, to CTEC by Platinum Professional Services Tax School. The tax course is available to you for six months upon registration. Our current tax classes are based upon the IRS's most recently available tax laws, forms, and schedules. We provide all students with tax updates throughout the year on our Platinum Blog site (*Note: The 6 hour AFTR course is limited to 6 attempts).
