Forums offer an opportunity to receive up to 18 continuing professional education (CPE) credits through a variety of training seminars and workshops.

This year, 40 separate seminars and three workshops are being offered, each of which qualifies for CPE credit for enrolled agents and certified public accountants. Additionally, 17 of the 40 qualify for continuing education credit for certified financial planners, pending review and acceptance by the Certified Financial Planner Board.

Members of the following participating associations qualify for discounted enrollment costs:

  • American Bar Association
  • American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
  • National Association of Enrolled Agents
  • National Association of Tax Professionals
  • National Society of Accountants
  • National Society of Tax Professionals

In addition to the seminars, the forums also feature a two-day expo with representatives from the IRS, tax, financial and business communities offering their products, services and expertise. Practitioners are invited to bring an active case to the forums to work with IRS personnel on site for resolution.

In a survey of 2008 attendees the forums received a 99 percent satisfaction rate. Attendees stated that their participation enabled them to offer greater technical expertise to meet their clients’ needs. 2009 marks the 19th year that the IRS has used these forums to help educate and interact with the tax professional community.

Those who would like to attend can register on line.
