WASHINGTON — Tax professionals can earn continuing education credits beginning today with the 2018 launch of the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online (NTFO).

Fourteen new self-study seminars, recorded at the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums last summer, are now available. The seminars instruct participants with interactive video, PowerPoint slides and transcripts.

The 2018 Tax Forums Online cover topics of broad interest to tax professionals such as:

  • Advocating for Your Uniformed Client – Military Tax Issues
  • Automated Underreporter
  • Get Ready for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act New Due Diligence Requirements
  • S Corporation Shareholder Basis

The NTFO is registered with the IRS Return Preparer Office and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a qualified sponsor of continuing education.

For a fee, CPAs, Enrolled Agents and Annual Filing Season Program participants can earn continuing education credits. To earn credit, users must create an account, answer review questions throughout the seminar and pass a short test at the end of each seminar.

The seminars can also be audited cost-free. Individuals who audit a seminar will not have access to the review questions or final examination and will not receive continuing education credit.

In addition to the new 2018 seminars, NTFO also offers numerous seminars from prior-year IRS Nationwide Tax Forums. For more information, visit
