Come tax season, chartered tax professionals need to use tools like Microsoft Excel to prepare taxes. This fully online course will teach you how to prepare individual tax returns for almost all U.S. taxpayers and best practices for using Excel. After successfully completing this course, you will be qualified to prepare individual tax returns and be ready to sit for the IRS Special Enrollment Examination (SEE). You will also be prepared to pass the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Expert certification exam for Excel.
Attention California Residents:
If you live in California and plan to become a preparer of Federal and/or state income tax returns, you must meet the requirements of the California Tax Education Council (CTEC) to become licensed to practice as a California Tax Preparer. In that case, you should instead take the Chartered Tax Professional for California Residents course, which will enable you to meet the CTEC requirements while also earning your professional CTP designation.
