  1. Earn CPE Credit at IRS EO Workshop


    The IRS Workshops for Small and Mid-Sized Tax Exempt Organizations have been approved for six hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit for IRS Enrolled Agents. The program may also qualify for continuing professional education for other tax practitioners, such as attorneys or certified public accountants. The state licensing agency is the final authority for the number of education credits, if any, allowed for this program. Certificates of Attendance will be available at the end of the workshop.

    The one-day workshop, which will be offered beginning next month in Houston, New Jersey (New York metropolitan area), San Francisco, Cleveland, Arlington, VA (Washington, DC metropolitan area) and Charlotte, NC, provides an overview of 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, and continues with more in-depth discussions of activities that can jeopardize exempt status, unrelated business income and gaming, employment issues, record keeping and disclosures, and an overview of Form 990.

    The cost of the workshop is $30 per participant, which includes all books and reference materials. Space is limited – to view the workshop schedule and agenda and to register online, visit the IRS Workshop Registration Web site.
  2. IRS Commissioner Discusses Tax Enforcement, Charity Oversight


    Detecting and deterring noncompliance and the spread of abusive tax shelters within the tax-exempt sector is one of the IRS' highest enforcement priorities, IRS Commissioner Everson told an audience at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, March 15.

  3. New Survey Feature for Subscribers to IRS E-mail Lists


    Subscribers to IRS e-mail lists, including EO Update, now have an opportunity to provide feedback to the IRS via occasional voluntary surveys.

    While there are no specific plans for a survey at this time, this new feature will allow the IRS to gather information from interested users about the resources and services taxpayers want, obtain feedback on current offerings, and other information.

    Participation in surveys is voluntary and anonymous. Subscribers may elect to participate in IRS surveys when they subscribe to any IRS e-mail list; as a current subscriber, you will automatically be included in any surveys unless you choose to opt-out. To change your survey preference at any time, visit the EO Update page.
