Late Renewals Due Soon

Thursday, December 31, 2015 - 4 comments

CTEC Registered Tax Preparers (CRTPs) who did not renew with CTEC by the October 31, 2015 deadline have until January 15, 2016 to renew late and the pay the $55 late fee. CRTPs who fail to meet the late renewal deadline will be required to start over, re-take the 60 hour qualifying education course and register as a new tax preparer.

By law, CRTPs cannot prepare tax returns for a fee until their registration is current with CTEC.

I have been trying to call your office numerous times, is there another number other than 877-850-2832. This number just rings and rings...
