Attention California Residents!

If you live in California and plan to become a preparer of Federal and/or state income tax returns, you must meet the requirements of the California Tax Education Council (CTEC) to become licensed to practice as a California Tax Preparer. In that case, you should instead take the Chartered Tax Professional for California Residents course, which will enable you to meet the CTEC requirements while also earning your professional CTP designation.
