Continuing Education
Tax Preparer Learning Systems, LLC is commited to providing high quality, easy to use, and affordable continuing education courses for tax preparers.

Enrolled agents can earn their continuing education requirements by taking one of our online tax courses.  We are an IRS approved continuing education provider - M75Y4 - and our courses are eligible for enrolled agent credit.

We are also pleased to offer our continuing education courses to those tax return preparers who were previously under the requirements of the Registered Tax Return Preparer program.  While the legal requirements are no longer effective, many tax return preparers have always been commited to increased tax knowledge.  We are proud to help those preparers maintain their own high standards.

These programs qualify for IRS continuing education credit for Enrolled Agents (EA) and/or Enrolled Retirement Plan Agents (ERPA) only. Currently, the IRS does NOT require continuing education for any other tax return preparer or PTIN holder. Participation in any of these programs is voluntary for other tax return preparers. Continuing education credits will be posted to PTIN accounts for any participant who provides their PTIN, regardless of credentials. To ensure that your continuing education credits appear correctly in your PTIN account, please provide your PTIN and name as they appear in your PTIN account. Reminder: CE providers are not required to submit program data to the IRS in real time, so your credits may appear in your PTIN account on a delay.
