IRS RTRP Requirements

In order to obtain your valuable Registered Tax Return Preparer RTRP designation you will need to successfully pass the IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer Competency Test which will allow you to be able to prepare tax returns for compensation. Beginning in November 2011, individuals wanting to become a tax preparer and receive compensation for their services will need to pass an IRS Competency Test and obtain a Personal Tax Idenfication Number (PTIN) in order to become an IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer and receive the Registered Tax Return Preparer RTRP designation. Once you obtain your PTIN and pass the IRS Competency Test you will become an IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer. The IRS will require competency tests from all paid tax return preparers with the exception of CPAs, attorneys and Enrolled Agents (EAs). These individuals will continue with their current education requirements.
