WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today announced the 2022 IRS Nationwide Tax Forum will be held virtually over five weeks starting July 19, with a series of live-streamed webinars every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Held each summer for more than 30 years, the IRS Nationwide Tax Forum is the IRS's marquee outreach event to the tax professional community. Even as some areas of the country are lifting limits on indoor gatherings, the IRS will once again present the Nationwide Tax Forum in a virtual format out of an abundance of caution.

The virtual format allows experts from the IRS and its association partners to educate and update the tax professional community on tax law, professional ethics, virtual currency, collection issues and many other topics. Registering and attending these virtual seminars will allow many to fully satisfy their annual continuing education requirements.

Tax professionals are encouraged to  register now  to take advantage of this virtual program.

The 2022 IRS Nationwide Tax Forum will begin on July 19, and continue through August 18, with live-streamed webinars broadcast on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Registration enables attendees to participate in all of the live webinars earning up to 28 continuing education credits.

The IRS Nationwide Tax Forum will feature a keynote address from Commissioner Charles P. Rettig, a plenary session with tax law and publications updates and multiple sessions on high-interest topics. Presentations are made by both IRS experts and partner associations.
