Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to take CTEC courses ?

If you wish to prepare taxes for a fee in the state of California, then you are required by state law to register with the California Tax Education Council (CTEC). In order to register with CTEC, one must complete 60 hours of CTEC Approved Qualifying Education, and 20 hours of CTEC Approved Continuing Education by October 31st of every year. If you want to just prepare your own taxes, you do not need to take CTEC courses.

Do I need to take 20 hours of Continuing Education by 10/31 even if I just finished the 60 hour course in the same year?

Yes, if you registered with CTEC after completing your 60 hour tax course, then you will be required to renew your CTEC registration and have 20 hours of continuing education completed before October 31st. All CTEC Registered Tax Preparers are required to pay the $33 Renewal Fee with CTEC and have 20 hours of continuing education completed by October 31st every year.

If you fail to complete the 20 hours of C.E. or renew by October 31st, you’ll be required to pay a $55 late fee, and you will have until January 15th to complete your 20 hours of C.E. If you have not completed your 20 hours of C.E. by January 15th, you will be required to retake the CTEC 60 hour course and restart the registration process with CTEC.

Are your courses approved by CTEC & the IRS ?

Yes, both 60 and 20 hour courses are approved by CTEC (California Tax Education Council) and the IRS. You can find our company listed here – https://www.ctec.org/Payer/ApprovedProvider/

I forgot to renew with CTEC , do I need to take the 60 hour course again ?

Yes, if you forgot to take the 20 hour continuing education course and/or forgot to renew with CTEC by the January 15th final deadline, CTEC will require you to re start the entire registration process, which includes retaking the 60 hour qualifying education course. 

Do I need to take a state exam after completing this course ?

Nope, the only test you’ll need to take is already included in this course. You won’t have to leave your home to take the test, you can take it at the computer when ever you’re ready. And we give you unlimited time and attempts, so if you don’t pass, you can keep on retaking it.

Are your CTEC courses up to date ?

Absolutely. All of our courses are updated annually with any new tax laws and regulations that come out.

What makes your course better than others ?

What sets us apart from everyone else is the practicality we’ve integrated into our courses. We’ve made the course extremely user friendly for those who are not that familiar with computers. All you have to do to start the course is simply enter your username and password, and you’re in!
