Greetings!

  
Hello,

 

Happy New Year!

Again, we would like to welcome our newcomers to the PlatinumProCommunity. We send out newsletters on a quarterly basis.  Our PlatinumProCommunity will make it easier for you to sort through information by highlighting any pertinent changes you should know about or just some fun tidbits. We take great pride in our customers and want to offer you exclusive discounts that are not available outside the PlatinumProCommunity. In our newsletter, we will offer you a promo code to get special offers again exclusively for our members.

 

Tax Preparers; We would like to update you, as we have received many calls in regards to the reporting of your completion.  For the 2012 year, when you renew your PTIN you will self certify that you have completed your CE requirements.  You must retain your certificate of completion for four years as the IRS will be auditing selected Tax Preparers. The IRS's system will be fully operational (you will be able to see your completion reported on your PTIN account) for the 2013 CE requirements.

  

Enrolled Agents;  Starting January 1st the IRS will be requiring providers to report your completion to the IRS, please make sure your PTIN information is correct on your Student profile. You have access to correct this on your Student Profile.

 

CPA'S;  We are excited to report that we are in the process of being NASBA approved.  We expect approval by the end of the year.

 

Notaries:  There have been two changes for the 2013 year.  Please scroll down for Notary Public News updates.

 

Lastly, as a special appreciation to our customers.  We are offering a discount for you to use for the 2013 year.  Please use promo code HappyNewYear and receive $15.00 off any course offering. 

 


 
Wishing you all a happy successful year,

Lauren Zago

Subscribing Witness Proof of Execution.  

 

Existing law prohibits the use of a proof of execution by a subscribing witness for a power of attorney, grant

deed, mortgage, deed of trust, quitclaim deed, security agreement or any instrument that requires a notary public to obtain a thumbprint in the notary

public's official journal from the party signing the document. The law is now expanded to prohibit the use of a proof execution for any other document

affecting real property; however, proof of execution of a trustee's deed and deed of reconveyance are permitted.

 

Journal Thumbprints

 

Existing law requires a notary public to require a party signing a deed, quitclaim deed, deed of trust

affecting real property or a power of attorney document to place his or her thumbprint in the notary public's official journal. The law is now expanded to

require a party signing any other document affecting real property to place his or her thumbprint in the notary public's journal. This does not apply to a trustee's

deed resulting from a decree of foreclosure or a nonjudicial foreclosure pursuant to Civil Code section 2924, or to a deed of re-conveyance.
