CPE Thinks' Brief List of Return Preparer Courses

A Tax Return Preparer (Return Preparer) is a specialized CPA, and will require specialized CPE courses. In those states that require continuing professional education, you will likely be required by your State Board of Accountancy or job to take CPE that falls into your specific category of accountancy. At CPE Think, we understand your specialized needs and have created many easy ways to search for specific Return Preparer courses, including a brief listing of all our Return Preparer courses.

Our List

We make it easy to see our courses. The brief list shows everyone on one web page, which is easy to see all of the information. However, we also have a detailed Return Preparer course list available. Our default listing is in descending credit order though you can choose to switch it to ascending hours if you prefer. Examples include:

  • Healthcare: The Affordable Care Act, eight credits
  • Retirement Plans, five credits
  • 2013 Federal Income Tax Change, four credits

The list will always start out with the course title and then provide the credits earned, both IRS and CPE. The next column is the price, followed by a helpful "buy now" button so you can immediately purchase the course you prefer. The next four columns tell you if the course is approved for Return Preparer, EA, Registry and QAS. Not every course will be approved for all specialties. The very last column shows if this is a new course or not. We do this because many CPAs or Return Preparers prefer to take all new courses each time they must recertify their continuing professional education.

What We Offer

We offer all kinds of CPE courses, including free, webinars, pilot options, and the entire list of all courses we offer by number of hours credited, field of study and by author.
