If you want to prepare taxes for a fee or compensation in the state of California, you are first required to complete a CTEC 60 Hour Qualifying Education tax course. You will also need to complete a series of other steps for CTEC, in order to become a Registered Tax Preparer. Click >HERE< for more information.
The deadline to complete your CTEC Registration Renewal is October 31st. You must have your CTEC 20 Hour Continuing Education tax course completed and CTEC fees paid by this date in order to complete your registration renewal. CRTP’s who fail to renew by the October 31st deadline may renew their registration during the late registration period, November 1st thru January 15th, with a late fee payable to CTEC. 2022 the late registration deadline had been extended to January 18th.
If a CRTP did not renew his/her registration by the late renewal of January 18, 2022, he/she will have to retake the 60-hour qualifying education course, complete a criminal background check, and register as a new CRTP.
The 2022/2023 renewal registration cycle for CTEC Registered Tax Preparers (CRTPs) starts August 1, 2022 and ends October 31, 2022. CRTPs who fail to renew by the October 31, 2022 deadline are able to renew their registration during the late registration period, November 1, 2022 thru January 17, 2023 and pay a $55 late fee plus the $33 registration fee, a total of $88.
California Tax Courses will report their students course completion to CTEC and/or the IRS typically within 1-3 hours, depending on the day and time you complete your course. If your course is completed on the weekend, it will be reported between 9am-1pm Monday morning.
We also stay up late on October 31st and the January late deadline, till midnight to make sure everyone who completes their course last minute has their hours reported before the Midnight deadline. Be sure to pay your fees owed to CTEC in order to complete your registration!
