Tax preparer and facilitator registration and continuing education

The 2023 Tax Preparer Registration application is now available. If you have not completed the 2023 Registration Education Requirements, you’ll need to complete it before you can register for 2023. 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.
