Did you know that the continuing education requirement for Registered Tax Return Preparers begins in 2012, regardless of whether you have taken and passed the RTRP Competency Exam? (This requirement is waived for CPAs, Enrolled Agents, attorneys, Enrolled Actuaries, and Enrolled Retirement Plan Agents.)

The 15-hour-per-year requirement includes 3 hours of federal tax law updates, 2 hours of ethics, and 10 hours of other federal tax law. Continuing education can only be taken from an IRS-approved provider like Surgent (sponsor #QDEJK).
