Tax preparer and facilitator registration and continuing education

The 2022 Tax Preparer and Facilitator Registration application is now available. You can register using your Individual Online Services account.

If you're a commercial tax return preparer, you must complete the 2022 Registration Education Requirements before you can register for 2022.

If you're having trouble using or accessing SLMS, see SLMS troubleshooting guide.

Generally, if you’re a New York State tax return preparer or facilitator, you must register annually with the Tax Department. If you’re a tax return preparer, you may also need to complete continuing professional education (CPE) requirements and pay a registration fee.
