Attention: Gleim has received notification from the IRS that as of Friday, January 18, 2013, the RTRP exam and all its requirements have been suspended. Therefore, the exam is not currently available, and continuing education is not currently mandatory for RTRPs or RTRP candidates. Many candidates are choosing to continue their RTRP preparations as a means of improving their knowledge of topics the IRS deems necessary for Tax Professionals. Other candidates have decided to pursue the EA designation instead. Gleim will continue to monitor the information being released by the IRS and will update this website accordingly.
