Why we ask for your PTIN

The IRS requires CPE sponsors to request a PTIN from students, so completed CPE can be reported to the IRS PTIN system.

Do CPAs need to enter a PTIN?

No, only EAs and AFSPs need to enter a PTIN, but if a PTIN is entered, the IRS requires providers to report completed CPE for that PTIN to the IRS.

Trouble logging in?

If you can’t login:

1) Use the automated password retrieval to make sure you are using the correct User ID and password.  If you email has changed, you need to contact us to get that updated in the system.

2) Make sure you are using proper capitalizaiton with your password.  The User ID is not case sensitive.

3) Try typing it in, not accepting the default populated by your computer.  If you ever type these in incorrectly, sometimes your computer remember the wrong ones.

Send us an email or call if you are having trouble.  We will need your first and last name, email, and city (and User ID if you have it!) to make sure we are locating the correct account.

Why do some courses say "Expired" on My Courses list?

Expired courses

Our courses are valid for one year from date of enrollment.  The expiration date displays on the My Courses page of the course system.

After one year has passed, the date changes from a date, to say “expired.”  Once a course expires you can no longer go into that course and you cannot take the final exam in order to receive the related CPE credit.

The IRS and the various State Boards of Accountancy require CPE providers to have a one year from date of enrollment expiration policy. This rule is to prevent students from taking out of date courses.

Note that even if your courses expire, you always have access to reprint your certificates of completion.

I can't remember if I have ever registered with FunCPE

If you can’t remember your User ID, try entering your email in the User ID/Password recovery box.

If that doesn’t produce results, just email us or give us a call and we will look it up for you.  

If you try to register and you get the message that your email is already in use, that means you have already registered with FunCPE once before.

It is better to update your old profile than create a new one, as this allows you to view and reprint old certificates and generally keep all your course information together.
