Payment is only requested at the end of the course when you send us your completed answer form. The printable answer form in your Exam Booklet as well as the online answer form have required fields for payment information.
California Tax School accepts credit/debit card payments using Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Payments may be submitted in one of three ways:
► For faster service, transfer your test information to the online answer form which links to secure payment options (with SSL encryption); or
► Fax the completed answer form along with your preferred payment method (there's a fax number on the last page of your Exam Booklet); or
► Use a scanner or smartphone to scan/photograph the completed answer form, then send the image to the secure email address listed on the last page of your Exam Booklet.
Optional add-ons. All passing students will receive their completion certificate by email at no extra charge. Students who choose to receive an extra certificate by mail would pay $4.65 in addition to the course fee described above.
Full refunds are automatically issued to students who score below
70% on the final exam of any course component (federal tax law overview,
federal tax law update, ethics, or California). Non-passing students may choose to retake the
which would mean submitting a revised answer form and paying the fee
that is in effect on the resubmission date. Students have four opportunities to
pass the same exam (original attempt plus three retakes).
