EA Journal CE

Heads up! EA Journal CE Goes Green in May 2015!

Everyone's favorite tax journal is taking steps towards reducing paper waste by making the Journal CE available online ONLY, beginning with the May/June issue of 2015. This doesn't mean you'll stop receiving the Journal in the mail - it will continue to be printed and mailed to you - but we're taking this one small step by eliminating the email and fax options for the Journal CE. Most members have already switched to the online test, because the cost is lower and scores are available immediately.


The EA Journal offers a low-cost, convenient way for enrolled agents to earn continuing education (CE) credit hours. Each issue contains a test which qualifies for either two or four hours of CE. The CE tests are based on the articles in that particular journal issue. By carefully reading all the articles, enrolled agents will be well-prepared to pass the test. The EA Journals, either by article or by digital version, can be accessed online here. Still have questions? Please visit the Online Education FAQs.

There are three ways* to submit the test for grading:  
  • The fastest, most convenient way to earn CE is to take the test online.
