If you are requesting continuing education credits for your training and volunteer time this season you must submit the request to the IRS by 30 April 2018.
Please remember that you must have certified online through Link & Learn to be eligible for Continuing Education Credits. See this FACT Sheet Continuing Education Credits for SPEC VITA/TCE Partners published last fall. The IRS also published this At A Glance CE Credit Requirements and Tips.
Here’s a quick guide to help fill out the 13615 correctly.
Your certifying official needs to sign the form indicating you’re certified, then your local coordinator needs to indicate you’ve volunteered the appropriate number of hours. Once you’ve done that, mail or email the completed Form 13615 to your local IRS/SPEC office.
