" The IRS will issue a "Record of Completion" once all requirements are fulfilled.
" Inclusion in the "Directory of Federal Tax Return Preparers with Credentials and Select Qualifications" on the IRS.gov website that will be available in January 2015 to help taxpayers determine return preparer qualifications.
