Every year, the Internal Revenue Service hosts the Nationwide Tax Forum, providing tax professionals the opportunity to learn more about topics like tax law and cybersecurity. Unfortunately, the registration window for this year's event is about to close.
According to the IRS, "Thursday, July 14, is the last day for tax professionals to register to attend the 2022 IRS Nationwide Tax Forum and have access to all 32 webinars—including a keynote address by IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig, updates on tax law, cybersecurity, practitioner ethics and more."
Like recent Nationwide Tax Forum, this year’s event is virtual, spanning five weeks from July 19 through August 18—with livestreamed webinars held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Registering three business days in advance is required for guaranteed access to any seminar, so those who register after July 14 won’t have access to the full lineup.
Join an IRS Focus Group
With your registration to the Nationwide Tax Forum, you can take part in one or more virtual IRS focus groups. Topics examined by these focus groups include:

There will also be demonstrations of IRS online accounts for tax pros and individual taxpayers provided by the IRS Office of Online Services.
