EAs & Tax Preparers

Trust Surgent to help you become an Enrolled Agent, maintain your EA credential, or earn the AFSP Record of Completion.

Enrolled Agents must complete 72 hours of IRS-approved continuing education every three years to maintain their EA status with the IRS, including a minimum of 16 hours each year (2 hours of ethics). Surgent’s live webinars provide the most convenient way for EAs to meet their requirement, with hundreds of IRS-approved options from 1-8 credit hours.


Choose from webinars in federal tax law, ethics, and tax update, and select a date and time that best fits your schedule – even evenings and weekends. No exam is required, and Surgent will automatically report your credit to the IRS.

New! 2016 Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP)


The Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP) recognizes the efforts of tax return preparers who aspire to a higher level of professionalism. Those who choose to participate in this year’s program can meet the requirements by obtaining specified hours of continuing education and meeting certain other guidelines by Dec. 31.  For non-credentialed tax preparers, earning the AFSP Record of Completion also provides a critical benefit for the upcoming filing season: the right to represent clients before the IRS.
