The New Rules for Paid Tax Preparers

If you employ seasonal tax preparers how can you ensure that they are able to pass the IRS competency exam?  Many tax preparers rely too much on tax software and don’t have enough tax knowledge to pass the IRS exam.  We will make our tax preparers can pass the final exam of our Comprehensive Income Tax Course with a grade of at least 90%.  Those who do not pass our test will be required to take the 60-hour course, either in a live class or online this fall.  Employees who also prepare business returns will be required to either test-out of or take the Comprehensive Course plus our Small Business Level I course (links below).  What are your plans to enable your tax preparers to pass the IRS competency exam?
