Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of taking a 20 hour CTEC-approved and IRS-approved continuing education course?
Every California tax preparer must complete 20 hours of continuing education per year in order to keep the CTEC registration current. You can face fines of up $5,000 per incident if you do taxes for pay without current CTEC registration. Completing your annual course helps you stay compliant, while also updating and refreshing you for the tax season ahead.
Why should I choose the Pronto Tax School Renew CTEC 20 Hour Continuing Education Course over other 20 hour tax preparer continuing education courses?
Our 20 hour CTEC & IRS course is unique and popular for two main reasons: 1) it's developed by real tax preparers who actually work with real clients, and 2) it's not insanely boring like so many other tax education products. In fact, it's rather entertaining at times, if we do say so ourselves. Our perspective is unique, and we focus on creating great value for you.
Can I take your 20 hour CTEC-approved tax course online?
You read the textbook, watch the videos, take the test, and get instant scoring, all online. If you want to see exactly how the course system works, watch this video.
Why did you change your online learning platform? The old system at RenewCTEC.com was working fine for me.
We get it, change is not always easy. As we have grown our membership, we outgrew our old platform, there were too many technical glitches. The new system is a much improved and stable online learning platform.
Thank you to all our thousands of Loyal RenewCTEC.com Members and rest assured the best is yet to come!
Why is your CTEC course so much cheaper than other courses?
We have always followed a "low price leader" business model at Pronto and our goal is to continue that tradition with our tax courses. We want to help save you money year after year while still delivering a very high quality product. Call us crazy but that's our way of doing business, and it has been working for the past 53 years so why change it now?
Do you provide a Spanish version of the course?
Yes! We are committed to providing tax education in both English and Spanish. The new Spanish version will not be ready until August.
What if I need a refund?
We offer a 14-Day No-Hassle Money-Back Guarantee! The only exception is if we have already reported your hours. If we have reported either your CTEC or IRS hours, there are no refunds whatsoever, even if you're within the 14 day refund period.
