Renewal course includes: 4-5 Hours of Video Training / All Program Materials
In this special four-hour workshop Tax Rep Founder Eric Green will explain everything that has changed in terms of IRS enforcement priorities and procedures, including exam, collection and criminal tax. Eric will review the current status of the IR 2020-248 changes made during the pandemic and where the IRS is in terms of maintaining those changes or rolling them back. Eric will also review the strategies each and every tax pro should have in their pocket to help taxpayers and resolve the client’s case with little muss or fuss.
Having the CTRC designation gives me the ability to communicate to current and potential clients that I have completed additional education and certification in order to learn as much as I can about tax representation and the processes utilized within the IRS. Successfully completing the CTRC program assures that I am adequately trained to do the most efficient planning and develop the best strategies to resolve clients’ tax issues. It also affords me the benefit of being associated with Tax Rep Network and belonging to a larger group of professionals who are available to consult and strategize when needed.

I feel the CTRC sets me apart from my competition, especially in my local area, because I’m pretty sure I am the only one North of the Bay Area to be CTRC at the moment. In the general population, barely anyone knows what an Enrolled Agent is, or what an NTPI Fellow is. However, CTRC actually means what the acronym stands for, once spelled out, and may be more clear to prospective clients. Plus, the program provided by Tax Rep Network is really solid and so is the support.
– Jessie Downs, EA, CTRC, NTPI Fellow
I have had the CTRC designation for a couple of years. It has helped for the fact that clients that come into my office for meetings see the certificate and we begin a conversation. From our conversations I have received 5 referrals in the last 6 months just by current clients seeing that we do tax representation. Having the designation lends credibility to you as a professional. It is definitely worth the time and effort to get the CTRC designation.
– Ira Levine, CPA, CTRC
Earning the designation gave me a whole new perspective and education on potential issues. As a result, I’m a better planner and advisor to my clients. Also, CRTC gives enormous insight into how the IRS works; as well as, humanizing the people who work there. Ultimately, I will work to renew my CRTC designation as it is an asset to my practice.
– AJ Yolofsky, Esq., CTRC
The CTRC designation means I have taken the opportunity to learn more about Representing my clients before the IRS. Although it is the EA designation that gives me the Right to practice before the IRS, obtaining the CTRC designation has given me the knowledge to do so effectively.
– Robert Pavicic, EA, CTRC
When I received my CTRC designation, I put out an informational release out to all of my clients. I immediately started to get more referrals from my network. It signals that I have specific knowledge to get their case resolved.
– Ken Mass, CPA, CTRC
The CTRC gives me credibility when people look to find someone to help them with their tax issue.
– Gerry Segales, EA, CTRC
The CTRC means that I am part of a group of Lawyers, CPAs and Enrolled Agents who worked for a deeper expertise in order to help their clients get the best resolution possible with the IRS.
