WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service will host a series of six tax forums across the nation this summer for the benefit of tax professionals, the IRS announced today.
The forums present the latest news and information from the IRS over three days of seminars. Representatives of the IRS, the American Association of Attorney-Certified Public Accountants, the American Bar Association, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the National Association of Enrolled Agents, the National Association of Tax Professionals, the National Society of Accountants and the National Society of Tax Professionals will lead seminars and be available for discussion.
This will be the sixteenth year the forums have been a component of the IRS’ communication and outreach efforts.
In a survey of last year’s attendees, 98 percent were satisfied with the Nationwide Tax Forums. Attendees have also said that as a result of their participation they are able to respond to their clients’ needs in a more professional manner and can offer more technical expertise.
In addition to the seminars, the forums also feature a two-day expo with representatives from the IRS and tax, financial and business communities offering their products, services and expertise.
