CE and CFP Certification

Continuing Education (CE)

Attendance at IRS Nationwide Tax Forum seminars qualifies for continuing education (CE) credits for enrolled agents, certified public accountants, Annual Filing Season Program (AFSP) participants and California Tax Education Council (CTEC) participants. You will need to understand and comply with your licensing organization's CE requirements. Attendance for the full 50 minutes of the presentation is required to receive one CE credit.

Each 50-minute seminar qualifies for one CE credit. Some seminars are presented in a workshop format, and therefore may qualify for more than one credit depending on the overall length of the class. The field of study for all seminars is "taxation" or "ethics", and the delivery method is "group-live."

A CE automation program will be used for all forum locations in 2015. Each attendee will receive a registration badge with a barcode. A barcode scanning system will be implemented within each seminar room to quickly and efficiently track attendance. Prior to the start of each seminar, forum attendees seeking CE credits will need to scan their badge to confirm attendance. Please note that only those participants seeking CE credits need to have their barcodes scanned. Participants will receive an e-mail confirmation after the forum that will serve as proof of attendance. Be sure to provide a valid e-mail address with your registration if you wish to receive the e-mail confirmation.

IRS Communications & Liaison is a qualified sponsor of continuing education required for those individuals enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service (Enrolled Agents).

The IRS is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
