Washington (April 22, 2003) - The Internal Revenue Service is hosting three-day Nationwide Tax Forums to educate the tax practitioner community. The forums, now in their 13th year, have been completely revamped with more advanced seminar topics and a greater number of seminars on tax law than previous forums offered. Approximately 15,000 tax professionals attended last year's forums.

Scheduled for this year are advanced seminars on abusive schemes, tax shelters, basis determinations, alternative dispute resolution options, tax credits, retirement plans, compliance initiatives and other issues. There are also seminars on 2003 income tax law changes, electronic filing, Earned Income Tax Credit hot topics, becoming an enrolled agent, and applying for tax-exempt status.

The IRS's monthly Web cast program, "Tax Talk Today," will present "Everything's Electronic" via a live downlink to the Atlantic City tax forum, and forum attendees will be able to pose questions to the show's panelists.  The National Association of Enrolled Agents, the National Association of Tax Professionals, the National Society of Accountants and the National Society of Tax Professionals will all present seminars at the upcoming forums.

The dates and locations of this year's six forums are:

• July 8-10 in Atlantic City, N.J.

• July 22-24 in Orlando, Fla.

• August 5-7 in Atlanta

• August 19-21 in St. Louis

• September 2-4 in San Antonio

• September 16-18 in Las Vegas

Prospective attendees can visit the Tax Professionals page on the IRS.gov Web site, or call Public Affairs International at (301)-593-0200.
