WASHINGTON — As the Nationwide Tax Forums begin, tax professionals are being reminded to make reservations now for one of six forums being held throughout the country.

The Nationwide Tax Forums are three-day events that provide tax professionals with the most up-to-date tax information through training seminars presented by IRS experts and partnering organizations. Forums offer an opportunity to receive up to 18 continuing professional education (CPE) credits through a variety of training seminars.

The locations are:

  • Atlanta — July 17-19
  • Chicago — July 31-Aug. 2
  • Las Vegas — Aug. 21-23
  • New York — Aug. 28-30
  • Anaheim — Sept. 11-13
  • Orlando — Sept. 18-20

This year 41 separate seminars are being offered, each of which qualifies for CPE credit for Enrolled Agents and Certified Public Accountants. Additionally, 28 of the 41 qualify for continuing education credit for Certified Financial Planners.

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

  • American Association of Attorney-Certified Public Accountants
  • 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.

The cost of enrollment is $165 per person, per city for pre-registration and $299 for late or on-site registration. The pre-registration period ends two weeks prior to the start of each forum.

In a survey of 2006 attendees the forums received a 94 percent satisfaction rate and a 99 percent overall quality rating. Attendees stated that their participation enabled them to offer greater technical expertise to meet their clients’ needs. 2007 marks the 17th year that the IRS has used this successful format to help educate and interact with the tax professional community.
