3.  Volunteers should use the Form 6744 Test/Retest to take the test on paper first before completing it online.  The questions are sometimes slightly different in the online test and you might have to recalculate something while taking it.  You should use Publication 4012 as a reference while taking the test to help decide on filing status and dependency questions as well as other issues.  The PDF is available on the TaxWise software in the Practice Lab.

4.  Volunteers should click on the "Practice Lab" link on the right of the Course webpage.  You can use this to practice using the TaxWise software and also try using it to complete the test problems if you would like.

5.  When you complete and pass the test and go back to the Home Page of the Link&Learn Test website you will see a link on the right that says "View/Print Completion Certificate".  Click on the link and save the PDF certificate to your computer and then email it to the email address at the bottom of this webpage.
