Universal Accounting announced its approval as an IRS Continuing Education Provider, enabling individuals desiring to become Registered Tax Return Preparers to fulfill their CE requirements through Universal’s self-study and online tax courses.
Allen Bostrom, President and CEO of Universal Accounting explained, “Continuing Education has always been an essential part of the qualified professional tax preparers’ annual duty. Universal Accounting Center is proud to continue to offer this imperative service as an IRS-approved provider.”
Universal’s CE approval applies to four courses in their tax training, the Professional Tax Preparer Program. The first two courses, Establishing the Tax Foundation and Becoming the 1040 Expert, are excellent preparatory courses for the required IRS Registered Tax Preparer Competency Test. The third course, Profitable Business Returns, is for all tax preparers who want to break into the business-return market. And the fourth course, Building Your Successful Tax Practice, is a must-have for everyone starting a tax practice.
Just months after completing the program, Angel Vincent had 23 tax clients. She continues to enjoy the perks of being a UA graduate, including “Freedom! Freedom to choose my clients, freedom to set my own hours, freedom in my salary because I choose how much work and for what fee! Plus, the commute is great--I work out of my home, [and while I] visit clients in the field…most of the work is done in my extra bedroom.”
The IRS oversees the approval of all CE providers. Because Universal’s tax training was already recognized as a sponsor of Quality Assurance Service (QAS) self-study courses, after meeting the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy’s (NASBA) rigorous standards, the Professional Tax Preparer program was easily adopted by the IRS. Universal is happy to join the ranks of IRS-approved Continuing Education Providers and is confident that their tax training will enable countless graduates to advance their careers in the finance industry.
