Other Tax Return Preparers CPE Requirements

Currently, CPE for Other Tax Return Preparers is voluntary. The IRS does not currently recognize the prior designation of “Registered Tax Return Preparer.” From the IRS:

As of Friday, Jan. 18, 2013, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia has enjoined the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing the regulatory requirements for other tax return preparers. In accordance with this order, tax return preparers covered by this program are not currently required to complete competency testing or secure continuing education.
