Why is this course often referred to as a "20-hour" course? Is that a minimum or maximum time limit? Am I going to be timed while taking this course?
We do not monitor your study time. We do not impose a minimum or maximum time limit for this course. You may take as little or as much time as you need to successfully complete this self-paced course. All we ask is that you submit your 2021 exam answers before 12/31/2021.
As mandated by CTEC, this course was designed in such a way that the "average student" will take about 20 hours to complete. Actual study time will depend on one's experience level, background, and study methods.
When you pass this tax course, your CTEC and IRS accounts will be credited with a predetermined amount of continuing education hours, regardless of how long you actually took to complete the program.
