EA Sponsor Information

IRS approved CE provider for EA and AFSP

FunCPE is an IRS Approved Continuing Education Provider for Enrolled Agents  (EA), Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP) Record of Completion, tax preparers and all Other Tax Return Preparers (OTRP).

FunCPE has been providing interesting tax and ethics courses to EAs for over 20 years.

  • Valid in all states
  • Our current sponsorship is valid through December 31, 2024 (all IRS CE Sponsor agreements have annual renewals)
  • Review our IRS CE Sponsor approval letter as well as print it out for your records.

The IRS established new requirements for CE Sponsors in December 2011, including reporting CE earned to student IRS PTIN accounts.  FunCPE received immediate approval to continue providing CE to both EAs and Other Tax Return Preparers, which now includes the Annual Filing Season Program for non-credentialed tax preparers.

Our CPE Certificates of Completion meet the IRS standards

Written confirmation of course completed is provided by the certificate which includes:

  • Your name and address
  • CE program name
  • IRS issued program number
  • Date completed
  • Length of CE program in credit hours
  • Signature of a sponsor representative
  • IRS approved provider number
  • CE provider name and address

The IRS now requires that the PTIN not be included on the certificate for security reasons.  Many of our students display their certificates at their offices, and most agree it is preferable not to have the PTIN printed on the certificate for confidentiality.
