To have a new property tax professional continuing education course approved, the provider will need to contact the Property Tax Division of the Comptroller of Public Accounts (PTAD). The provider will need to submit a course approval application prior to scheduling of any courses/seminars. For more detailed information, contact the Property Tax Assistance Division (PTAD).
Each year the provider must renew their registration to offer continuing education courses. Course approvals are valid for one year, assuming the provider’s approval remains current throughout that time.
Please note that the reporting of continuing education hours is the responsibility of the continuing education provider. Licensees may check their hours at the Continuing Education Courses Look Up. If the hours have not been reported, the licensee should contact the provider first to ensure that the hours are reported. If the reporting issue is not resolved, they have the option of filing a complaint.
