The Return Preparer Office just sent 312,000 letters to tax preparers who have a test requirement but have yet to schedule an appointment. Is that you?   Southside Virginia Community College with campuses in both Alberta and Keysville, Virginia (centers in various other locations) has partnered with The Income Tax School to offer courses to prepare you for the IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) Competency Test.  The Continuing Education (CE) requirement for RTRP candidates began in 2012 and CE hours must be taken from an IRS approved CE provider. Southside has partnered with The Income Tax School to offer a 15 hour CE package. The 15 hours of CE includes the required 10 hours of federal tax law, 3 hours of federal tax law updates and 2 hours of ethics each calendar year. The Income Tax School is an IRS approved CE provider.
