Do I need to participate in the AFSP if I am an EA?

Question: If I am an EA, do I need an AFSP – Record of Completion?

Answer: This program is not designed, directed or intended for credentialed preparers who already possess a much higher level of qualification. However, if an attorney, certified professional accountant, enrolled agent, enrolled retirement plan agent, or enrolled actuary seeks to participate in the program, you would be required to meet the same CE requirements as preparers in the exempt category.
