Business Tax Test

The Business Tax Test is designed for testing candidates who are preparing business tax returns and who are working at Enrolled Agent level and below. The test assesses knowledge of the preparation of business tax returns and calculations, including income and deductions using practical examples from questions dealt with by real tax preparers - not textbook questions!  

Different competency levels assessed within the test determine the range of abilities and value the candidate can add to the tax preparation team.

Job titles this test is applicable for would include Tax Preparer, Tax Associate, Tax Accountant or Tax Analyst.

This is a country-specific test with annually updated questions to reflect current taxation rules.  

This test covers four core business tax areas:

  • Income - Gains & Losses for Ordinary & Capital income
  • Deductions, Credit and Basis in assets
  • Tax return requirements and calculations
  • How tax is applies to different entities

Practice owners gain insight into a candidate's skills and knowledge levels in each of these four activities, as well as an assessment of their competency level in each activity. You will also be able to identify a candidate's performance in the activities most relevant to the vacant role.
