Online Tax Sessions Offer CPE Credit

The IRS-sponsored Q&A forum, Tax Talk Today, is now offering CPE credit for those who view the archives of previous sessions.

Participants may view the archived programs online or may order a video of past sessions. Video tapes of previous sessions sell for $24.95.

To earn credit, a test and evaluation form must be completed.

Prices for the self-study CPE are $25 per credit hour, however volume discounts are available.

Included among the archives is the special edition session, "Tax Relief for September 11, 2001 Disaster."

Tax Talk Today airs live on the last Tuesday of each month. The next scheduled broadcast is October 30, when the topic will be, "The Real Marriage Penalty: Innocent Spouse Claims." The moderator will be Les Witmer, Communications Consultant and 23-year veteran of the IRS.
