AFSP Package Description


The Annual Filing Season Program is a voluntary continuing education program for tax return preparers. Participation in the AFSP has proven to be quite beneficial for preparers who complete the program and receive the Annual Filing Season Program Record of Completion. By learning critical updates for the upcoming 2021 tax season, a tax preparer has the essential knowledge and information that give them an edge over non- AFSP participants.

The IRS permits anyone with a preparer tax id number (PTIN) to prepare tax returns for compensation, but will not allow all unenrolled PTIN holders to represent clients before the IRS. In order to talk to the IRS during the examination of a client's return an unenrolled tax return preparer must complete the 6-hour IRS Annual Federal Tax Refresher Course (AFTR), along with additional continuing education to receive an AFSP record of completion.


  • Speak To The IRS: With an AFSP record of completion you have limited representation rights, meaning you can represent clients during an examination of a return that you sign or prepare.
  • Stand Out From Other Tax Preparers: AFSP participants are included in the directory of Federal Tax Return Preparers with Credentials and Select Qualifications. The 2021 AFSP differentiates you in the marketplace from other unenrolled preparers.
  • Master Tax Law Updates For 2021: Learn about important updates and changes for the upcoming 2021 tax season. Share that meaningful knowledge with all of your tax clients.
