IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online is a registered, qualified sponsor of continuing education, offering tax professionals—including CPAs, enrolled agents and Annual Filing Season Program participants—the option of screening recorded seminars for a fee to get their continuing education credits.
Earning the credits is easy. Users first create an online account; they’ll have to answer some review questions during the recorded seminar to validate their attendance and pass a short test at the end of the seminar.
All the seminars may be audited for free. However, audited seminars don’t include either the review questions or the final test, so they don’t qualify for credit.
For more information on this option for continuing education credits, check out the IRS Nationwide Tax Forum Information site online.
