Earn CPE Credits at 2014 IRS Tax Forums

In need of CPE credits? Well, if you are an enrolled agent or CPA, you could earn as much as 18 credits by attending one of five IRS Nationwide Tax Forums this summer.

The IRS Nationwide Tax Forums are three-day events that provide tax professionals with the most current information on federal and state tax issues. Experts from the IRS and its partner organizations will present more than 40 separate seminars and workshops during the forums, which will be held this July and August in Chicago; San Diego; New Orleans; National Harbor, Maryland; and Orlando, Florida.

In addition to CPE, the seminars may qualify for continuing education credit for Certified Financial Planners, pending review and acceptance by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, according to the IRS.

A few days prior to the start of each forum, attendees will be able to download, print, or load onto their mobile devices slide presentations of seminars that they are interested in.

In addition to the seminars, the forums will also feature a two-day expo with representatives from the tax, financial, and business communities offering their products, services, and expertise.

The cost for those who preregister is $225 per person – a savings of $130 off the late or on-site registration price of $355. Preregistration ends two weeks prior to the start of each forum.

Below are the five locations of the 2014 tax forums, the forum dates, and the preregistration deadline for each forum.
