The American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS), is a national non-profit membership association, was created in 2003 to address the needs of a special group of professionals. The Society is comprised of Attorneys, CPAs, and Enrolled Agents who regularly deal with clients suffering from IRS problems.
ASTPS provides continuing education regarding changes in IRS laws, and new strategies in dealing with the IRS. ASTPS members are continuously kept up to date with the newest and best ways to represent their clients.
ASTPS offers the opportunity for each member to sit for a certification examination. Professionals who pass this comprehensive test earn the Certified Tax Resolution Specialist (CTRS) designation. Professionals with this designation are required to meet minimum continuing education and ethical requirements in order to retain their CTRS designation.
"I just wanted to publicly thank everyone at ASTPS for a great seminar in Baltimore this week. I learned more in the first two hours of Boot Camp than I did in three years of study at NTPI. Larry, your presentations were superb. I was riveted and on the edge of my seat up until the very last moment on Tuesday. I have been toying with the idea of changing the strategic focus of our practice to taxpayer representation. Now I feel equipped to do so. Look for an application to move my certification over shortly, because ASTPS is the best training organization around for those wishing to build a representation business. Thanks again for all you do!"
