Whether you’re looking to start a new career as a tax professional, grow your own tax business, prepare for the IRS Competency Exam, or take required continuing education, Blue Ridge Community College can help. Our partnership with The Income Tax School (ITS) allows you to complete new IRS requirements for tax return preparers.

The Income Tax School is acknowledged by tax industry and IRS executives as the national standard for tax preparer training.

  • Paid federal tax return preparers must pass an IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) competency exam. Those who already have a tax preparer PIN have until December 31, 2013 to complete and pass this exam.
  • A new continuing education (CE) requirement of 15 hours per year is now required for federal tax preparers. CE hours must be taken from an IRS-approved CE provider.
