Intuit and National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP) Team Up for Professional Development

Agreement Provides Tax Preparers with Quality Education to Easily Meet Professional Goals

NEW YORK – May 4, 2011 – Intuit
Inc.
(Nasdaq: INTU) is teaming up with the National
Association of Tax Professionals
(NATP) to help tax preparers achieve their
professional goals and fulfill CPE requirements through a series of top-notch
training programs designed for Intuit customers. More than 300 courses cover
everything from basic to advanced tax preparation to preparing for the Enrolled
Agent Exam and the impending Registered Tax Preparer Exam.

The courses are offered at special discounted pricing for Intuit customers
and are available in a variety of ways to meet practitioners’ needs, including
in-person workshops, live and on-demand webinars and facilitated online courses.

“Because tax professionals have different goals and needs, we have different
tracks of education to help them meet their training goals,” said Allessandria
Polizzi, group manager for learning and development, Intuit Accounting Professionals
Division. “Together, our two organizations will offer affordable training
that help tax preparers achieve their training goals and meet the new IRS regulations.
We are thrilled to partner with NATP to bring excellent training to Intuit customers.”

Course Offerings
In the extensive course library, Intuit and NATP offer classes to help
tax professionals prepare for the Enrolled Agent Exam conducted by the IRS to
become an enrolled agent and a basic tax training course for new employees or
new tax preparers who want to learn how to do Form 1040 tax preparation.

Additionally, Intuit and NATP offer a preparation course for the soon-to-be-required
Registered Tax Preparer Exam. Under Internal Revenue Service guidelines, unlicensed
tax preparers must complete 15 hours of continuing professional education training
each year, beginning in 2012. Unlicensed preparers are those who, until now,
have not been formally regulated by the IRS. By the end of 2013, these unlicensed
preparers will be required to pass a competency test in order to become Registered
Tax Return Preparers.
