Answer for If I am a tax preparer, will I have continuing education requirements?

Because the IRS Preparer Regulations were suspended by court order, the IRS does not currently require tax preparers to complete any continuing education. That could change in the future if the IRS wins its appeal or obtains authorization from Congress to regulate preparers or the IRS could decide to make the regulations voluntary. The rules will not change for the 2014 tax season. Tax preparers who practice in California, Maryland, and Oregon are subject to state preparer regulations, including continuing education.
