The National Society of Accountants (NSA) is offering an intensive NSA Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam Review Course & Accredited Tax Preparer (ATP) Review Course/Exam August 20-22, 2017, at the Nugget Casino Resort in Reno, NV, immediately before the NSA Annual Convention and Expo at that same location.

Designed to give tax professionals the best opportunity to pass the EA exam on the first try, the 3-day course provides in-depth review of all the key components of the exam.

Enrolled Agents are authorized to represent taxpayers before the IRS and tax professionals who hold the EA credential can command higher fees. They must pass a three-part IRS exam covering individual and business tax returns, adhere to ethical standards, and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.

NSA’s Enrolled Agent Exam Review Course is a comprehensive and intensive—and we mean intensive—review geared toward a single purpose: to help you master tax basics and pass the EA exam.

Detailed study notes will be provided for each topic, including figures and charts that prove the old adage that “…a picture is worth a thousand words.” Hundreds of past exam questions from the open-exam era and many more potential questions on newer topics are incorporated and each is reviewed in class so the real exam itself will look like an old friend. Study tips, tricks and shortcuts are a staple of this course.

Included with Your Registration:
  • The 3-Volume NSA Enrolled Agent Review Course in online and PDF formats—a $200  Value! Preview Course Materials
  • Detailed handouts, notes, examples, illustrations to follow the course step-by-step. Preview Sample Slides

  • Weekly study guides with detailed assignments and time allocations.
  • Comprehensive study aids that summarize the tax law related to a particular subject. These aids should prove valuable in last-minute reviews prior to the exam.

Earn the Accredited Tax Preparer (ATP) Credential:

The Accredited Tax Preparer (ATP) designation, offered by the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation (ACAT), is also a leading national credential for tax practitioners who have a thorough knowledge of the existing tax code and the preparation of individual tax returns with an expertise in comprehensive 1040 issues including supporting schedules, self-employed returns, and ethics. Earning the ATP credential exempts practitioners from taking and passing the Annual Federal Tax Refresher course and exam each year, which are a component of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP).

The ATP course package also includes:

  • Extra hour on day 1
  • The Accredited Tax Preparer digital course materials
  • The proctored ATP exam on Tuesday morning (additional fee)

The Accredited Tax Preparer exam is offered by the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation (ACAT), established in 1973 as a non-profit independent testing, accrediting and monitoring organization. Learn More
