Are there any tax qualifications worth getting aside from a Masters or CPA? I have no masters and no desire to go back to college full time.

EA? If you don’t qualify for or pass the CPA

Replied below

Let’s start with “why do you want a tax qualification if you don’t want to do the ones that matter?”

Replied below

I should clarify, I already have a CPA, but I don’t feel I have a broad knowledge of tax because REG isn’t really that in depth.

Thanks for the advice both. I will be back to ask for recommendations when I have the time to read again.

So it’s not just a qualification, you want to learn

3 yrs, off and on, but it was fun!
