Certified Financial Planner (CFP) Credits - The IRS is registered with the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. The board has the final authority on the acceptance of individual tax forum courses for continuing education credit for certified financial planners.

Case Resolution Program - This year, you can once again bring your toughest unresolved IRS case (one case per tax business) to the Case Resolution Program. IRS representatives with specialized expertise will be available by appointment only to meet one-on-one with tax professionals. If we can't resolve the case onsite or it needs more research, we'll assign it to the appropriate IRS unit for follow-up.

A signed original or copy of your Power of Attorney (Form 2848), authorizing disclosure of confidential tax information, is required and must be presented when scheduling an appointment. Only the practitioner(s) listed on the POA will be allowed in the Case Resolution Room. For an appointment, visit the Case Resolution table on Monday before the Forum begins, from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm, or go directly to the Case Resolution Room during the three-day event. To expedite scheduling, bring your Form 2848 and a completed Nationwide Tax Forum Case Data Sheet with you. The form is available online.

The Case Resolution Program can help you resolve one client's toughest tax case. The program is for client cases only. We cannot assist you with any personal tax case or any case in which you have a vested interest. If you have an issue with a case of this nature, please contact the IRS or the Taxpayer Advocate Service directly.

Networking Opportunities - Enjoy good food and great company! Mix and mingle, reconnect with friends and colleagues, share information and best practices, or just relax and enjoy at our two networking events the Welcome Reception and the Networking Reception.

IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online (NTFO) - Visit the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online (NTFO) website. The NTFO site provides courses based on taped seminars from previous IRS Nationwide Tax Forums. NTFO courses may be audited for free or purchased for CE credit (testing included). To visit, go to http://www.irstaxforumsonline.com/.
