The Income Tax School

The Income Tax School (ITS) is the national standard for tax preparation training and provides e-learning to tax, accounting and financial services professionals. ITS is certified as a private career school by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). The School currently offers more than 40 online income tax preparation training programs nationwide, ranging from 3-hour Continuing Education (CE) seminars to 30-80 hour courses, as well as the prestigious 180-hour ITS Chartered Tax Professional (CTP®) certificate program.

SPCS has partnered with ITS to offer online courses that prepare students to become tax preparers. Today more than ever, people are relying on paid tax professionals to handle their income tax preparation and other business affairs. Even with tax preparation software in full force there is increasing demand for tax professionals.

Visit The income Tax School learning portal to see the courses and to learn about the Chartered Tax Professional (CTP) certificate program.

Partnership Benefits

Our partnership with ITS offers a set of courses and certificates that SPCS does not offer on its own. The courses ITS provides are offered entirely online.

Note: Online courses offered by SPCS partners may be eligible for faculty and staff tuition remission, but they are not eligible for the University of Richmond alumni discount. These courses are offered through partnerships with other providers. Therefore, SPCS cancellation and refund policies do not apply. Each provider has its own cancellation policies. Please contact the provider directly for information on course cancellations and refunds.
