The Chartered Tax Professional for California Residents course will help you become qualified as a California Tax Preparer through the California Tax Education Council (CTEC). The course is composed of six modules in Federal income tax preparation that will prepare you for the Special Enrollment Examination (SEE), plus a California supplement. The Special Enrollment Examination (SEE) is a test that individuals can take to become an Enrolled Agent in the United States. The Enrolled Agent credential is issued and regulated by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
After successfully completing the Federal and California lessons, you'll be qualified to prepare individual tax returns for almost all U.S. and California taxpayers.
Note: If you do NOT live in California, you aren't required to take this California version of the course. If you don't need to or don't wish to learn California tax preparation, you should take the regular Chartered Tax Professional course instead of the California version.
