This is a voluntary program that must be competed by December 31, 2018.
It is designed to encourage education and filing season readiness for paid tax return preparers.
The Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP) will allow unenrolled return preparers to obtain a Record of Completion
There are two categories of unenrolled tax preparers:
non-exempt tax preparers must complete 18 CE hours
when they voluntarily complete a required amount of continuing education (CE), including a course
in basic tax filing issues and updates, an ethics course, and other federal tax law courses.
exempt tax preparers must complete 15 CE hours
WiseGuides offers a 15 CE hour package for exempt tax preparers - $75
WiseGuides does NOT offer an 18 CE hour package for non-exempt tax preparers.
