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.

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. 

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)

Earning the ATP credential exempts practitioners from taking and passing an Annual Federal Tax Refresher course and exam each year for the the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP).

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
