AFSP Record of Completion

What are the benefits of getting an AFSP – Record of Completion?

In addition to being included in the new public directory of tax return preparers launched , the AFSP – Record of Completion differentiates you in the marketplace. The IRS launched a public education campaign in 2015 encouraging taxpayers to select return preparers carefully and seek those with professional credentials or other select qualifications.

Also, as of 2016, there are changes to the representation rights of return preparers.

Attorneys, CPAs, and enrolled agents will continue to be the only tax professionals with unlimited representation rights, meaning they can represent their clients on any matters including audits, payment/collection issues, and appeals.

AFSP participants will have limited representation rights, meaning they can represent clients whose returns they prepared and signed, but only before revenue agents, customer service representatives, and similar IRS employees, including the Taxpayer Advocate Service.

PTIN holders without an AFSP – Record of Completion or other professional credential will only be permitted to prepare tax returns. They will not be allowed to represent clients before the IRS
