The California Chartered Tax Professional Online Certificate Program will help you become qualified as a California Tax Preparer through the California Tax Education Council (CTEC). The California Chartered Tax Professional Certificate Program is composed of six modules in Federal income tax preparation, plus a California supplement. After successfully completing the first two Federal programs and the California lessons in the California CTP Certificate Program, you'll be qualified to prepare individual tax returns for almost all U.S. and California taxpayers. This online certificate program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers.

Upon successful completion of this program, you'll be able to:

  • Practice as a qualified tax professional
  • Prepare tax returns for all individual U.S. taxpayers
  • Prepare small businesses corporate, partnership, and sole-proprietor tax returns
  • Conduct a professional tax preparation client interview
  • Provide tax planning for individuals and small business owners

The entire text is provided online; however, hard copies of student texts are also provided at the start of each program for your convenience and future reference. You will receive a CD with the student text that includes the following materials:

  • Federal Forms

Prerequisites

A high school diploma or equivalent is a prerequisite for this program. Accounting and specific math skills aren't required, just the aptitude to work with numbers and people and to read and interpret the tax laws.

This program is suitable for all adults who seek a fast track to a professional white-collar career. Tax preparation is especially appealing to those who would enjoy helping other people by making the intimidating task of tax preparation a pleasant experience, while saving their clients money by minimizing their tax liabilities.

Tax preparation is also an ideal career choice for those looking for part-time income. Homemakers with young children find tax preparation a convenient profession, as they're able to be off when their children are out of school for the summer, yet maintain their professional skills. College students prepare taxes as an opportunity to gain professional work experience and credentials to strengthen their resumes. Moonlighting professionals use tax preparation a source of extra income during winter months.

Many employed and self-employed individuals such as financial services and real-estate professionals find tax preparation a complementary profession to earn extra money and generate leads for their other professional activities, while also enabling them to better serve their clients through knowledge of the tax consequences of their clients' decisions.

If you are taking this course to begin a career in taxation you will need to meet the following requirements:

  • Complete Comprehensive Tax Course (located within program)
  • Register with the IRS and get a PTIN
  • Begin preparing tax returns as a tax preparer

All of our programs are self-paced and open enrollment, so you can start them when you want and finish them at your own pace.
