Continuing Education Requirements for CTA®

A Chartered Tax Advisor® must meet continuing education requirements similar to those that Enrolled Agents meet. If you are both an EA and a CTA®, you can use your EA courses to meet your CTA education requirements.

To maintain your certification, you must meet the following CPE requirements:

Annually earn 15 hours total

  • 3 hours ethics
  • 3 hours federal tax law updates
  • 9 hours federal tax law courses (any subject related to federal tax law)

All FunCPE tax and ethics courses qualify for CTA CPE credit

Because this is a national certification, Chartered Tax Advisors in every state can receive credit for our courses.

Accordingly, FunCPE offers ethics, tax law update and a wide variety of tax law courses.  Since our ethics courses are each 2 hours, you would need to take 2 ethics courses to meet the 3 hour requirement for CTAs.

We welcome Chartered Tax Advisors to our site and would like to serve your needs better. Please contact us with any suggestions for new course topics for Chartered Tax Advisor CPE specifically.
