In addition, students will learn specific state tax laws regarding issues like part-year and nonresident issues, community property rules, and domestic partners.

IRS Tax Return Preparer Prep Course w/ AFTR

Our IRS Tax Return Preparer Prep tax course covers IRS Form 1040 and related schedules and forms. Topics include income, gains and losses, adjustments to income, standard and itemized deductions, tax credits, small business income and expenses (including Schedule C), and depreciation. A series of quiz review questions will guide you so that you will become proficient with the IRS's terminology, guidelines, and procedures.  A final exam will be given at the end of the course. The tax course also includes a comprehensive tax return exercise. Our current courses are based upon the IRS's most recently available tax laws, forms, and schedules. Most students should expect to complete the questions and exercise within 60 hours. Upon completion of the course a certificate will be awarded.

In addition, the course also includes the Annual Federal Tax Refresher (AFTR) which designed for tax preparers who are looking to participate in the Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP). Once you become an AFSP record of completion holder with the IRS, the IRS will list your name in their online tax preparer directory including your credentials. You will also have limited rights.
