History

ITS was originally developed in 1989 to meet the tax training needs of Peoples Income Tax, Inc. a tax preparation firm with multiple offices located in Richmond, Virginia. Charles McCabe, President and CEO of Peoples Income Tax, knew from past experience that it’s difficult to find qualified tax preparers on a seasonal basis. After working as Regional Director for a leading national firm for nearly 20 years, he knew training tax preparers in-house or “growing your own tax preparers” was the best solution. Starting in 1993 we made our tax school materials available to individuals as a way to learn taxes and to businesses as a way to train qualified tax preparers in-house.

In 2003, ITS launched its online tax school and now teaches tax education to students nationwide and beyond. Many students are beginners who are learning taxes for the first time. However, we also have EAs and CPAs that take our courses for Continuing Professional Education.

Tax Business Owners

Over the years the tax school materials have been refined and made available for individuals and businesses since 1993 as a way to learn taxes and train qualified seasonal and year-round tax preparer in-house. Why send your employees and prospects to the competition when you can train them yourself?


Income Tax School Training & Continuing Education 

Our first income tax school classes are scheduled to start October 1, 2015, and students looking to become New Tax Professionals will be able to complete the entire 60 hours of class training online at their own pace through our certified instructors.  This is perfect for people who work all day, and can't make it to a traditional night class offering 2 to 3 times per week.  

NOTICE:

On January 18, 2013, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia enjoined the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing the regulatory requirements for registered tax return preparers.   In accordance with this order, tax return preparers covered by this program are not currently required to register with the IRS, to complete competency testing or secure continuing education. 

CPAs, attorneys, enrolled agents, enrolled retirement plan agents or enrolled actuaries are not affected the ruling for these regulatory practice requirements. 

​​
IMPORTANT:
The AFTR is merely a short federal tax refresher course for experienced tax preparers and will not enable a person who is not an experienced tax preparer to learn how to prepare income tax returns.  If you are interested in becoming a tax preparer, you should consider our Basic Comprehensive Income Tax Course.

AFTR course options are available now for the 2016 tax season. This course is not available after 12/30/2015, as the IRS completion deadline is 12/31/2015. The AFTR course will become available again in the Summer 2016, pending IRS regulations for 2017 tax season.


Start Taking Your CE Now and Be Ready for Tax Season!
