Annual Filing Season Program
(AFSP) Credential

The Fun and Profitable Way.  PRONTO!

Obtain and maintain your AFSP credential while learning all the new tax updates. (Includes the 6 hour course for AFTR).

Why AFSP Credential?

The IRS Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP) is a voluntary education and registration program.  Tax pros who obtain this credential receive certain benefits that non-AFSP tax preparers do not. If you are an “unenrolled tax preparer” (meaning, not EA or CPA) and you choose not to obtain your AFSP credential, you will lose all rights to represent your clients with any and all IRS matters.

Most tax clients assume that their tax professional will represent them with the IRS should an issue arise. Without the AFSP credential, you will not have this right, which can lead to a breakage of hard-earned trust with your clients if and when an IRS issue arises. In addition to preserving your rights to help your clients if and when they need help, IRS will also list you in a database of tax pros who have completed continuing education, which some tax pros use as a way to stand out from their competition.

Benefits of AFSP Credential

  • Ability to represent your clients with the IRS in resolving any questions or issues with your clients tax returns.
  • Free listing in the IRS Federal Tax Return Preparers Directory
  • Credentials creates confidence and creditability with your clients.
  • You don’t have to be a CPA or EA to have direct access to the IRS

You need to complete your continuing educational course before the end of the year in order to be able to have access to the IRS during the next tax season. Be prepared and ready for your clients this coming tax season by getting the AFSP credential today.
