The 2021 IRS Nationwide Tax Forum Will be Held Virtually
Like many of you, we look forward to resuming the IRS Tax Forum in-person events once we can safely do so. However, due to ongoing and evolving public health and safety concerns resulting from the COVID-19 health emergency, the 2021 IRS Nationwide Tax Forum and Expo will once again be offered virtually.
The 2021 Virtual IRS Nationwide Tax Forum will consist of 30 live-streamed webinars between July 20, 2021 and August 19, 2021. Webinars will be offered every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 11:00am and 2:00pm Eastern Time each week. The detailed schedule of webinars is available here.

Earning CE Credits
Each live webinar will last for approximately 60 minutes and will qualify for one CE credit. The maximum number of CE credits earned at the 2021 Virtual Tax Forum is 28**. CE Certificates showing credits for all webinars attended during the Virtual IRS Nationwide Tax Forums will be emailed to participants at the conclusion of the Tax Forums. While no knowledge-based test is required, attendees must fulfill all of the following requirements to receive CE credit for a webinar:
- Be present for the entire 60-minute presentation
- Respond to all polling questions throughout the presentation
- Complete the survey at the end of the presentation
**Important note: In cases where the same subject matter is presented both in English and in Spanish, the webinar will only qualify for one CE credit, even if you participate in both the English and Spanish versions. Specifically, for the 2021 Virtual Tax Forum, webinars #29 and #30 are the Spanish-speaking versions of webinars #26 and #22 respectively. Therefore if you were to attend both webinars #29 and #26, you would only get one CE credit; similarly if you were to attend both webinars #30 and #22, you would also only get one CE credit.
Registration at the 2021 Virtual IRS Nationwide Tax Forum includes access to the Virtual Expo. The Virtual Expo provides a great opportunity to visit with exhibitors representing dozens of commercial leaders in the industry, as well as leading national associations and several key IRS offices. Highlights of the Virtual Expo include:
- Visit with exhibitors to view the latest tax products and software
