Synopsis:

The most effective system available to prepare for the new Tax Return Preparer Competency Exam

In recent years, the role of third party assistance in tax return preparation within the United States has become more significant.

Beginning in 2011, tax return preparers are required to pass a competency test to officially become registered tax return preparers. The Wiley Registered Tax Return Preparer Exam Review Book 2012 has been designed with this in mind and is the perfect guide to help you pass this comprehensive test. The course, complete with extensive exercises and a final exam review, will provide you with a solid foundation on the subject of taxes, and the preparation of an accurate and complete income tax return. Along the way, it covers specific tax issues you need to be familiar with, including tax theory and law; conducting a thorough client interview; and offering tax advice and explanations to clients.
