Tax professionals can earn CPE credits online through seminars filmed at the 2016 IRS Nationwide Tax Forums, the service announced.
The three-day forums provided up-to-date information on federal and state tax issues, and were held in five cities across the country earlier this year.
More than a dozen self-study seminars are now available on the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums Online Web site.
The 2016 seminars cover a number of topics, including: “Is Your Case Ready for Appeals? (Examination Edition)”; “Foreign Tax Credit for Individuals”; “Emerging Issues in Tax Practice Due Diligence”; and “ACA Employer and Coverage Provider Information Reporting Requirements.”
The online seminars are registered with the IRS Return Preparer Office and NASBA as a qualified for continuing education. For a fee, CPAs, EAs and Annual Filing Season Program participants can earn continuing education credits. To earn credit, users must create an account, answer review questions throughout the seminar and pass short tests at the end of the seminars.
The seminars can also be audited for free. Individuals who choose to audit seminars will not have access to the review questions or final examination and will not receive credit for the seminar.
