The IRS has introduced the voluntary Annual Filing Season Program for 2019 Tax Season

03-Aug-2018 2817  

The program is directed at preparers who are not licensed as attorneys, CPAs or enrolled agents. These preparers would generally need to complete a 6-hour Annual Federal Tax Refresher (AFTR) course and obtain a score of 70% or higher on the associated 100-question comprehension test as well as meet additional CPE requirements.

Once a tax preparer has met all requirements for the voluntary program, a certificate will be available in the PTIN holder’s online IRS account for printing. The requirements are:

Valid PTIN for the upcoming filing season; Renew before December 31, 2018.
The appropriate number of continuing education credits;
Completion of the AFTR course with 70% or higher score on the comprehension test (if required); and
Consent to the Circular 230 obligations.
