Welcome to the Paid Preparer Due Diligence Training

The Paid Preparer Due Diligence Training helps you, as a tax preparer, better understand the earned income tax credit (EITC), child tax credit (CTC)/additional child tax credit (ACTC)/ credit for other dependents (ODC), American opportunity tax credit (AOTC), head of household (HOH) filing status and your responsibilities under the paid preparer due diligence regulations.

By completing this course and passing the test, you may be eligible to receive one continuing education (CE) credit for tax law. To get the CE credit, you must enter your preparer tax identification number (PTIN) when you register, or you can add or correct your PTIN using "My Account." You can take the training without entering your PTIN by choosing "Other." If you choose "Other," you can print a certificate of completion, but you won’t get CE credit.
