Question: Now that the EA exam is offered pretty much continuously throughout the year, when does the IRS start testing new tax laws?
Answer: Beginning May 1 of each year the EA exam will test the previous year’s tax laws. Gleim typically releases a new edition of EA review a couple months before the new laws are tested. Those tax laws will be covered through the last day of the testing window, which is the day of February of the following year. Those candidates using the Gleim EA Complete System may be eligible to receive a complimentary replacement edition for only the cost of shipping.
