Registered Tax Return Preparer Program Status
The RTRP program continues to be suspended due to the most recent court ruling in Loving v IRS. The IRS has released this statement:
"On Feb. 11, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld the decision of the lower court in the case of Loving vs. IRS, finding insufficient statutory support for the IRS’ regulation of federal tax return preparers. Taxpayer reliance on paid tax return preparers and effective tax administration are inextricably linked to quality return preparation. As we assess the scope and impact of the court’s decision and determine our way forward, our focus on improved competency will continue"

I took the IRS RTRP exam on August 1, 2012 and passed on the first try!
Many thanks to the study materials and method from Phoenix. They are well designed, sophisticated, and extremely helpful, especially the self-test and the 10 CE hours.
