WASHINGTON — Tax professionals can earn continuing professional education credits online through seminars filmed at the 2011 IRS Nationwide Tax Forums. The seminars are now available on the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online (NTFO). The 14 self-study seminars provide information to tax professionals using interactive videos synchronized with slides. Each seminar includes downloadable PowerPoint slides and a transcript.

The 2011 NTFO seminars cover many topics of interest to tax professionals including tax law updates and changes to information on IRS procedures and processes, registered tax return preparer regulations, new information reporting requirements, IRS Fresh Start initiatives and their effect on collection, the small business health care tax credit and EITC due diligence for preparers.

The online forums are registered with the IRS Office of Professional Responsibility and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a qualified sponsor of continuing professional education (CPE). For a fee, EAs and CPAs taking NTFO seminars can earn CPE credit. To earn CPE credit, users must create an account, answer review questions after viewing each chapter, and pass a short test at the end of the seminar.

Online self-study seminars allow users to learn at their own pace, any time of day, from any location. The seminars are broken into chapters for easier viewing.

NTFO seminars can also be audited for free. Users who choose to audit seminars will not have access to the review questions or final examination and will not receive credit for the seminar.

In addition to the recently-added seminars, NTFO offers over 30 other seminars from prior year IRS Nationwide Tax Forums from 2008 through 2010 (some seminars are only available for audit).
